Microsoft bids Windows Tips ads

While Microsoft continues to improve the operating system to make it more user friendly, sometimes the company makes statements that don't help it at all. Neither she nor her operating system.

Below we'll see what happened recently when users of the company's operating system began to report seeing ads in Microsoft Edge, Redmond's new browser that replaces the Internet and which is available exclusively on Windows 10.

Users reported that they noticed pop-ups above the Edge icon on the taskbar trying to persuade third-party browsers to use Microsoft applications. So they rightly complained about advertising.Windows 10

But according to Microsoft this is not the case, as the company said, these are tips that come to help users make the most of Window 10 and their available applications.

How can ads be converted into tips?

“As we continue to improve Microsoft Edge, we inform our users about the great new features available in the browser with Windows 10 notifications. Windows Tips notifications were created to provide quick, easy information that can help and enhance experience with windows 10. Windows 10 users can easily change the default settings and preferencesusers, if they wish, by turning off these Windows tips and notifications from their system settings.” a spokesman for the company said.

In fact, these “tips” can be turned off if you want from Settings – Personalization – Start, as the image below shows (the image is from with Windows 10 that I haven't activated)

So WindUp 10 will stop advertising several. win-10-tips
