Naija Tech News (NTN) on 16, and in content, Microsoft Windows 10 full-screen Edge browser recommended ads hit, Microsoft, Windows 10 .
Windows Latest reported that Windows 10 has begun testing full-screen Edge browser ads to pester users. In the Windows 10 build version, Microsoft is conducting A/B testing on a new “feature” designed to show users the full-screen window Edge recommendation in the OOBE screen.
This recommendation window will appear when the user sets up their PC device, logs in to the system after applying an update, or clicks on the new advertising banner in the settings.
With the launch of Windows 10 version 2009, Microsoft finally abandoned the traditional Edge browser launched in 2015. Microsoft Edge has been updated to use the Chromium engine version, and Microsoft once again pushed a recommendation banner for its Chromium-based Edge within the operating system.
Microsoft is trying to persuade users who are accessing rival browsers in Windows settings to try the Chromium Edge browser. In the “Settings” app, there is a new banner that seems to be rolling out to non-internal users .
As you can see from the screenshot, the ad appears at the top of the “Settings” application window. The slogan says that you can “get more from Windows”, and then you start the OOBE (out of the box experience) interface.
According to the displayed advertisement/recommendation. “Just select a few items quickly and you can enjoy the complete Microsoft experience.” Through the “Let’s go” button, you can open the full-screen windowless OOBE interface.
In the OOBE interface, there is a new page called “Use recommended browser settings”. It is recommended that users restore the Microsoft Edge browser and fix the browser on the desktop and taskbar.
Naijatechnews is informed that clicking “Use Microsoft’s recommended browser settings” will set Edge as the default browser and fix it on the taskbar/desktop .
This ad will only appear when our device is set to use Google Chrome and Firefox as the default web browser.
The user can easily close the ad by clicking the second option “Do not update browser settings”. If you try to skip the setting, a pop-up window will appear in the future.
Unfortunately, you cannot permanently disable these suggestions in Windows 10.
It is worth mentioning that Microsoft’s competitor Google is also actively recommending the Chrome browser to users who access Google search, Gmail, Google Drive, Chrome Store and other services through the Microsoft Edge browser.
