As posted on Disable Those Annoying Taskbar Pop-Up Suggestions In Windows 10
Microsoft really wants you to use the Edge browser on your Windows 10 laptop. If you don’t, you’ll get taskbar pop-ups advertising for it. It’s annoying. Here’s how to turn them off.
Every time I open Chrome, Windows tells me I’ll get better battery life if I use Edge instead. Thanks, but no thanks. I don’t care, I want to use Chrome. Stop pestering me Windows. If you feel the same way, here’s the fix:
- Hit the Windows key or click the Windows menu in the bottom-left corner of your desktop.
- Go to Settings (the gear symbol) > System > Notifications & Actions.
- Disable the “Get tips, tricks, and suggestions as you use Windows” toggle.
- Use whatever applications you want without being judged.
It’s a minor inconvenience, sure, but it’s so much nicer now that I can use my preferred choice of browser in peace.
