How to turn off App Ads on Windows 10

The Settings app now shows the ad in the home screen, but you can disable the experience using these steps on Windows 10 version 1809.

Starting with Windows 10 version 1809 (Redstone 5), the Settings app shows recommended content to the right of the home page, similar to what you see on the right side of each settings page.

While this recommended content type can be helpful to learn more about the experience while changing system settings, this content in the homepage can be a bit intrusive for many users. However, if you want to remove suggested content from the Settings home page, there is a toggle button, you can turn it off to disable the feature.

In this guide, you’ll learn the steps to remove recommended content (also known as Windows 10 ads) from the Settings app’s home screen.

How to delete content is suggested in the main page of Settings

If you want to prevent the Settings app from displaying suggested content in the Settings main page, use the following steps:

  1. Open Settings .
  2. Click Privacy .
  3. Click General .
  4. Turn off Show me suggested content in the Settings app .

  5. Once you’ve completed the steps, the Settings app will no longer suggest content on the right side of the home page.

If you don’t see this option or suggested content doesn’t appear in the Settings app’s home page, it’s probably because you’re not running a version of Windows 10 that supports this feature. Recommended content appears in version 1809 and up only.
