Continues to mature: Microsoft's new ad infuriates users

21 תגובות

The giant company continues to create network resentment with the addition of particularly prominent advertising directly in the file management system of 10 - but you can avoid it easily

It is hard to argue with Microsoft's assertion that Microsoft has taken a number of positive steps with its current operating system, which provides a mostly stable, accessible user experience, with an attempt to strengthen previously overlooked areas (such as gaming, etc.). However, it is impossible to ignore several "improvements" that we would like to see in Windows 10, where one of the first places on this list will unquestionably catch up with the problematic custom of pushing advertising and marketing offers to new and unexpected places - To say the least.

After the unceasing offers to upgrade to the 10 version of the system for users of the 7 and 8 versions, towards the end of the first year of its launch and the official free runtime, Has begun to incorporate proposals that promote its other products even in the latest system, when it seems that these blunders are on the rise.

Honey, the advertisements are beating again!

First advertisements appeared in a relatively small pane next to the familiar "start" lines, but the company's latest initiative takes the trend a step further and occupies a prominent position in the file explorer File Explorer, which gives you access to all the files stored on the system - Annual service to the cloud cloud , At a reduced cost of course (Hurray?).

The very existence of the unexpected banner is nothing new, but it seems that only recently in the company decided to operate it for a large number of users (after a short period of time it seemed only to a very small number of specific users), and this caused a resurgence of the network. The banner can be cleared for a certain period using a dedicated no-now button at the bottom, but in this case it will reappear after a while.


This is how "marketing proposals" appeared in 10 windows until recently, so you can certainly say that there is a trend of radicalization and expansion that does not really make the most of consumers happy

To our delight, there is still a simple and quick way to get rid of the completely new and annoying ad. All you need to do is select the 'View' tab in the File Explorer, and click on the 'Options' button.

There is an easy way to hide the new problem - hope that it will not disappear suddenly

In the window that opens, you will need to go back to the tab 'View', and then scroll down and you can find 'Show sync provider notifications', which should permanently delete the message. It is worth noting that eliminating this option will not allow any pop-ups in the system on behalf of the cloud's service - so if you use it frequently you may prefer to 'surrender' to an advertisement and not lose this characteristic that can actually be useful.

It is impossible not to understand the outrage of some of the users that comes after the encounter with the new addition in Windows 10 - after all it can be seen as a kind of "replay" of the aggressive marketing method that accompanied the launch of the system itself, with the proposals for free upgrade for users of older operating systems Began to appear at first in a relatively small and polite manner, but later developed into constant harassment that was even based on deceptive mechanisms to ensure maximum number of upgrades, In a class action suit.

The company declared that one year after launch But now there seems to be reason to fear that these efforts have been directed at those who have already agreed to upgrade their system - and in this case we may see the situation only getting worse if there is no significant active opposition to this at this stage . All we have to do is to hold the fingers of the software developer to understand and internalize the innuendos, and reduce the amount of surprises they are preparing for us in this category.

, Let's settle for everything we've seen so far in 10 windows - like the example above
