I've not tried it yet, but from what I've read O&O are well regarded and trusted. Might try it out later. :)

O&O ShutUp10 means you have full control over which comfort functions under Windows 10 you wish to use, and you decide when the passing on of your data goes too far. Using a very simple interface, you decide how Windows 10 should respect your privacy by deciding which unwanted functions should be deactivated.

Couple of articles here:

Berlin-based developer O&O Software has released O&O ShutUp10, a tiny portable tool for controlling Windows 10′s many privacy-related settings.

Amongst its near 50 tweaks are options to disable telemetry, Wi-Fi Sense, key app permissions, peer-to-peer updates, automatic Windows updates and more.

ShutUp10 can apply its "recommended" tweaks in a couple of clicks, disabling the worst offenders while leaving Windows updates, SmartScreen and other technologies you might actually need. But if you know what you’re doing, you can turn off everything, or configure items individually.

This kind of batch tweakery is always risky, but ShutUp10 does offer to create a system restore point before it does anything, handy if you need to undo your changes later.

There’s also a separate option to restore Windows 10′s default privacy settings, which might be useful if they’re generally messed up and you’d like to start again.

O&O ShutUp10 is a 109KB freeware application for Windows 10.

O&O ShutUp10 is a tiny portable tool which makes it easy to tweak Windows 10's many privacy settings.

Launching the program displays almost 50 options, organised into various categories: Security (telemetry, wifi sense, DRM), Privacy (Cortana, input personalisation, app permissions), Windows Update (disable peer-to-peer updates, disable automatic updates) and more. These aren't always clearly described, but clicking any item displays more details on what it does.
