    How to turn off Windows 10 Start Menu Ads
    If you are using the default start menu of Windows 10 you may have noticed that ads may be displayed in it from time to time.

    The ads are displayed in the same location that recently added apps are shown in (if there are any) and highlight Windows Store apps for now.

    Microsoft calls them suggestions but that seems to be just a friendly word for advertisement these days.

    Note: These suggestions have appeared on recent Insider builds but not (yet) on Stable versions of Windows 10. It is probably only a matter of time though before suggestions appear on stable versions as well.

    A click on the suggested application opens its Windows Store page where you can download it or look up additional information about it.

    Since you only see its name in the start menu, it may sometimes be difficult to tell right away what kind of app or game it is let alone why it was suggested to you.
