Last year, Microsoft added a new feature to Windows 10 that displays full-screen notifications when the system starts. The goal is to encourage users to set up a “supported by microsoft account” service, and now it appears that Microsoft is once again using the notification to draw attention to the features and service-related content of certain operating systems, even if it is not a newly installed system.
In theory, this full-screen wizard prompt will only appear when windows 10 is installed or upgraded for the first time, but some users report that they received the notification without updating the system. Full-screen notifications can appear even when they simply log out and log in back to the desktop.
While the new tips don’t seem to contain any thing private, for some it can be scary, as full-screen notifications are customary to show up when resetting or installing a new operating system, giving the illusion that the system is in trouble.
Microsoft’s Get even more out of Windows or Welcome to Windows tips are designed to encourage users to set up services provided by Microsoft accounts, such as Windows Hello Face, Fingerprint or PIN, OneDrive, Your Phone apps, and Microsoft 365. The tip also recommends that you review the privacy features that you’ve configured on your device.
If you don’t want Windows 10 to pester you with these unhelpful full-screen notifications again, you can disable the feature by following these steps:
Open the Settings app from the Windows Search or Start menu.
Click on “System”
Navigate to “Notifications and Actions”
Uncheck the option “Suggest how I’m going to finish setting up my device to get the most out of Windows.”
You can also uncheck two other options: “Show me the Windows Welcome Experience” and “Get tips, tips, and suggestions” to reduce suggestions and similar tips on Windows 10.
When you restart your PC, these changes are automatically applied to your system.
However, you will receive a similar notification again when you upgrade to a new version of Windows, restart your device, or switch between user accounts.
