Windows 10 Users Seeing Full-Screen Ads As Screen Savers

For those of you that don't know, you can turn this "feature" off. Right click on the desktop, select lock screen and turn off the "get fun facts, tips, tricks and more on your lock screen" button.

Just because you don’t have to lay out money for software, that doesn’t necessarily make it "free." In the last few days, users of Windows 10 have noticed full-screen ads on their lock screen if they happen to be using "Windows Spotlight" to put pretty pictures there. Fortunately, you can banish the ads from your screen, without even having to pay.
