Microsoft has recently released a new build for Windows 10 Preview. As expected, build 14901 doesn’t include many additions, since it’s the very first Redstone 2 build, and new features have yet to come. However, there is one new feature in build 14901 that we’re going to talk about in this article.

Starting from Windows 10 Preview build 14901, File Explorer will show notifications to users who choose to turn on this option. These notifications are basically tips and info about various new or old features of Windows 10. So, if you want to find out more about the system, you’ll receive useful tips right into File Explorer.

This feature will be useful to all new users of the system, and all the other people who aren’t familiar with all the elements of Windows 10.

However, even though these notifications could be very useful to newbies to the system, more experienced users might just find them annoying. Luckily, there’s a way to easily turn File Explorer notifications on or off. To disable notifications, do the following:

  1. Open File Explorer
  2. Go to View > Options
  3. Now, go to the View tabfile expliorer notifications
  4. Find Show sync provider notification, and uncheck it.

There you go, once you perform this action, you won’t be receiving notifications in File Explorer anymore. Of course, if you want to turn this feature back on, just repeat the steps listed above, and check the option once again.

This is the very first change to File Explorer that we expect to arrive with the Redstone 2 update. However, since we’re still far from the third major update for Windows 10, we still don’t know what else Microsoft has prepared for any of the system’s elements. There are some early predictions, but once again, nothing has been confirmed yet.
