It knows where you are right now.
It knows what apps I opened on my Windows 10 computer, down to the exact day I opened them.
It has all my search data from its Edge browser.
It knows what movies I watched with its Windows 10 movie player, down to the exact date and time.
Interesting link below for you,

Of course it depends on whether you set up Windows 10 with a Microsoft Account (the default) or with a Local Account.
If the latter, then Microsoft will have a good deal less "personalised" information about you.
However, many W10 features do need you to have a Microsoft Account .... https://www.howtogee...s-in-windows-8/.... so it's trade off between privacy and functionality, and which is the more important to you.

I personally use windows 10 with a local account now. And I also have shutup from 0&0 as well, and turned off telemetry things because everything that you open on it will be sent to microsoft. I learned more about this when I installed diagnostic data viewer, and it showed that what ever I opened it for sent to microsoft, what ever I copied and pasted, sent to microsoft. So I use shut up to stop this from happening.
I do agree with Gary R when he said:
so it's trade off between privacy and functionality,
That is very true. Microsoft really does bank on people allowing them to have these information about you.
Here is the link in case you want it for downloading shutup. I personally have it stored on the C:\:
