The third round of Patch Tuesday updates that rolled out last week came in with a lot of new features for Windows 10. However, Microsoft hasn’t thought of a very clever advertising method for these new features.
Instead, they seem to have opted for the old-fashioned, and extremely annoying, nag screens.
Microsoft is nagging users about their new features
After the latest Windows 10 updates, there appears to be an increase in notifications that urge users to:
Get even more out of Windows
Back before the updates, these prompts would appear only after a clean installation of Windows 10, or when you start of the device for the very first time.
However, Microsoft later started pushing even more notifications onto users’ screens. You may receive the notification that gives you information about additional services such as Your Phone or Office 365 that you can set up.
According to users, the notification started appearing after a recent Windows Update, possibly the March or February Patch Tuesday updates.
Microsoft states the prompts are meant to help
The Windows prompt showcases a number of services that you can acquire after creating a Microsoft Account. As an example, the notification gives brief info on some of the following Microsoft services:
- Your Phone
- Windows Hello
- Office 365
- Cross-platform and device experiences with your Microsoft account
However, if you still consider these notifications to be more of a nuisance, you can always opt to disable them.
