Easy Fix for Ad Removal

When Microsoft introduced Windows 10 free upgrades last year, some users are now paying the price for the cost of “free”. You may have seen advertisements pop up when Windows 10 is in the lock screen mode. Fret not, there is an easy fix for this annoying disturbance. Here is the easy fix for ad removal:

Go to settings>personalization>Lock Screen and then uncheck the box that says “Get fun facts, tips, tricks and more on your lock screen.”

Please note that this only works if you are using “Picture” or “Slideshow” in your “Background” setting. Apparently, users of the Windows Spotlight feature will still see the advertisements. (Thanks Rob Thubron for the tip!)
