How to Disable App Diagnostics in Windows 11

The apps you download from the web or the Microsoft Store are organized to take advantage of your device’s hardware and software information. If you stop the permissions to access the device information, the apps won’t function.

Likewise, some apps can catch detailed information about the other apps running on your Windows system. For instance, the Task Manager on your Windows 11 can display information about every other app running on your device.

Microsoft’s Windows operating system carefully separates the apps so they don’t interfere with each other. However, malicious apps can occasionally make their way to your device and utilize the App Diagnostic data to catch information about other running apps.
