It’s pretty well accepted that Microsoft isn’t very good at naming things. At the very least, the names they come up with are misleading at best and downright deceptive at worst. Take the name ”suggestions”, for example. Read ”Suggestions” as ”annoying ads”. As I’ve said before, let’s call a spade a spade.
Microsoft has even gone so far as to ”Suggest” that Firefox users begin using their Edge browser instead. This ”Suggestion” is placed right in the Start menu where you can’t miss it. Today, I will show you to turn off this ”in your face” behavior.
Getting To The Setting
- Use the Windows key + I shortcut to open the Settings App
- Choose Personalization
- In the left panel, choose Start
That should bring you here:
In the right panel, you should see a toggle switch labeled, ”Show
annoying ads suggestions occasionally in Start”. Turn this off unless, of course, you happen to like annoying things.
