In Windows 10, advertisements for Microsoft products such as Office 365, OnceDrive, etc. are displayed from time to time. Suggestions and tips on new Windows 10 features, recommended Windows Store applications, and much more are also presented.

These announcements, suggestions and tips usually appear on the lock screen, Start Menu, Action Center, Windows Ink workspace, Windows Explorer (this PC), Share fly-out and Cortana search.

These suggestions and tips are useful for many users who want to learn more about new features and changes in Windows 10. They are not a problem, but if you don’t need these unwanted suggestions, ads, and tips in Windows 10, you can disable them with the Windows 10 Settings application and other built-in options.

Disable Suggested Apps in Windows 10 Start Menu

There are several ways to disable or manage these proposed applications. If you see one, right-click on it and choose an option from the context menu.

  • If you do not want the application to be displayed, select Do not display this suggestion.
  • To completely disable the “Application Suggestions” section, choose “Disable all suggestions”.
  • The other way to get rid of suggested applications is to go to Settings > Customization > Start and occasionally disable the display of suggestions in Start.
  • Once you have removed the “Suggested Applications” section, there is still some space left, which you can remove by resizing the menu. Move the mouse pointer to the top of the Start menu, scroll down a little, and close the space.
