What's the heck about Microsoft's Windows 10 Pop-up ads?

Microsoft’s obnoxious reminders which were presumably rested on Windows 10 deadline, is back again, as pop-ups reminding users to sign up for Microsoft Rewards in using Edge, the Windows 10 default browser.

While many users are already irritated by the rather infiltrating ads, reporting it on Microsoft feedback system, insomuch as even removing Edge from their toolbar.

Albeit, the popads don’t appear frequently, Microsoft’s sneaky promotions for Office products since Windows 10 launch, which many users had turned-off via settings, was reset with its Anniversary update, dashing the hope that Microsoft’s obnoxious popup reminders had finally been laid to rest.

To turn off the notifications, however, you can follow the settings option to turn those Windows 10 ads off if you don't wish to see them. Simply head to Settings > Personalization > Lock Screen and turn off the box that reads “Get fun facts, tips, tricks, and more on your lock screen.”

Though Windows 10 remains “free,” there’s obviously a price for claiming your no-cost upgrade from Windows 7 or 8 - Microsoft's sneaky ads designed to coax you to buying into their apps or using other Microsoft services.
