    annoying desktop pop ups

    Hi Sheena,

    Pop ups can be distracting for some, and depending on your reference, you can disable the desktop pop ups by following these steps:

    • Click Start or the Windows logo and go to Settings (gear icon).
    • Go to System and choose Notification & actions.
    • Under Notifications, turn off Get tips, tricks, and suggestions as you use Windows or whatever you want to turn off.
    • Close the window and it will automatically save the changes.

    If you need further assistance, don't hesitate to reach out to us.

    Hi bilwilli .

    My name is Douglas and I am an Independent Advisor.

    I would like to help you.

    The following steps are valid for blocking pop-up pages in Microsoft Edge:

    > Click on the ellipses and select Settings.

    > At the end of the list select advanced settings.

    > The option called Block pop-up windows will appear.

    I hope this information is helpful.
