Microsoft revamped their browser that comes as standard with all Windows machines for the launch of Windows 10 in 2016. The new browser, Edge, is based on Internet Explorer but uses a number of enhancements to make it easier for touch users.
For users who would rather use alternative browsers like Google’s Chrome, however, they will be notified that edge is an option. On a regular basis, users will receive notifications like Try Edge. Some of these notifications will also explain why Microsoft believes that Edge is better for the user, explaining among other things that Chrome may be draining their battery, or that it is slower than Edge.
Users regularly complain of these frequent notifications, but Microsoft has built in an option to stop notifications. Turning off these notifications will mean that users are not given recommendations or advice in their notifications window. The following method explains just how to do that.
Turn Off ‘Get Tips, Tricks, and Suggestions’
- Press the Start button on your taskbar, and then press the Settings gear icon, which will bring up a new window.
- In this window, you will need to click System.
- In the new window, you will be presented with a vertical list of sub-sections. Scroll down until you see Notifications & actions and select it.
- You will be presented with a new menu, headed Notifications, with toggles to turn off each option. You need to search for Get tips, tricks, and suggestions as you use Windows. This should be the last result. Underneath this option there is a toggle. If it is toggled On, it will appear blue. Click it, and it will turn white, which means it is toggled
- Exit the window and you should no longer receive these notifications.
