Microsoft Will Show More Start Menu "Ads" In Windows 10 Redstone

Sure, you have the option of turning them off now, but who knows what Microsoft might decide in the future.

The first recommended apps arrived in Windows 10’s Start menu soon after the company delivered the November Update, and many people blamed Microsoft for displaying ads on their computers. While at some level they are right because in the end these are ads supposed to entice users into trying apps that are available in the store, it’s actually entirely up to them to decide whether to see these recommended apps or not. The Settings screen comes with options to disable these recommendations, and if you don’t want to see them anymore, just go to Settings > Personalization > Start > Occasionally show suggestions in Start.
