Many people do not realize that Microsoft often displays advertisements or suggestions right on the Windows 10 start menu. Advertisements are often a way for Microsoft to supplement the income they receive from the operating system. The advertisements themselves are non-intrusive. What this means is that the advertisements do not share your personal information with Microsoft or the advertiser. The goal of the advertisements are to generate additional content that may be relevant to the user.
There is a complete subset of computer users who are uncomfortable with advertising. They are especially uncomfortable with personalized advertising. For those users Microsoft has made a way for them to easily disable the ads that show up on the Windows 10 start menu. These advertisements are frequently recommendations from Microsoft for relevant information the user might find helpful. Disabling these ads is very easy to do.
