How to disable Windows Recall

Windows Recall is a new AI tool built-in to Windows 11 Copilot+ PCs that remembers everything you do on your computer. It enables the ability to semantically search for anything you’ve ever seen or done on your PC using natural language, and utilizes the neural processing unit (NPU) to process that information locally on device.

The feature works by taking snapshots of your screen every few seconds and storing them locally on your hard drive. The Windows Recall app consists of a search bar and timeline, which lets you scroll back through all the saved snapshots and can show you what was on your screen at any point. If you don’t want this feature, Microsoft has built-in a quick and easy way to disable it. Here’s how to turn off Windows Recall and delete the data it has collected.

How to adjust monitor refresh rate on Windows 11

Although Windows 11 can automatically set the optimal refresh rate for your monitor, you may still need to change this setting manually. For example, if you have a gaming monitor that supports high refresh rate settings, such as 120Hz, 144Hz, 240Hz, and higher. Or, if the screen is flickering, it could indicate that the display is using a lower refresh rate, and you may need to increase the rate to improve the viewing experience.

“refresh rate” describes how often the display renders an image per second, measured in Herts (Hz). For instance, if the monitor has a refresh rate of 60Hz, it can refresh the image on the screen 60 times per second. The most common refresh rate is 60Hz, but higher rates allow movements on the screen to feel smoother.
