Like it or not, ads are everywhere. From the websites you visit to yes, even your Windows 10 OS, you are tricked to watch and click on ads every now and then. While it is a way to earn revenues for companies, including Microsoft, the overdose of it can get annoying at times.
Whether you have upgraded to Windows for free off-late, or you paid for the pre-loaded version, you will still get to see ads that will force you to buy apps and service, which may not be useful after all. From the Lock screen or the Start Menu to the File Explorer or Cortana, your system is full of ads.
But, the great thing is, you have a choice to disable the ads and not see them back unless you want to. Let’s see how to turn off all ads in Windows 10 from everywhere.
