    Remove advertising from lock screen


    I get ads on my lock screen for something called microsoft rewards. Like the following:


    Like what you see?

    Who doesn't love free stuff?

    Earn points towards free games

    Millions have already joined, you in?


    What is this, an advertisement for male enhancement pills? Really tired of getting ads everywhere I look in windows now. Please tell me how to disable all of these.

    :)

    Enable or Disable Lock Screen in Windows 10  


    Hello superduper, and welcome to Ten Forums. *Smile

    Yep, step 9 in your post is correct. This won't disable the lock screen at startup though.

    If you have Windows Spotlight selected for your lock screen, you could switch to a picture instead to stop that bit of advertising.
