The new Windows 10 is just too perfect. Its Action Center notifications are perfect too but shortly after you upgrade to the operating system, you will notice it is doing things you are not expecting from it, like spitting out notifications—ads, really—cajoling you to buy or upgrade Office. That’s one of them above.
Fortunately, stopping the ads from showing up is a very simple thing. All you need to do is to know where they’re coming from, but we’ve got you covered. The culprit is the new Get Office app that comes preinstalled on Windows 10.
There are many different ways you can disable the Get Office notifications. If it is not in your plan to take advantage of the Office discounts available in the app, the scorched-earth approach will do the work for you as soon as possible. Just open the Start menu’s All Apps list, right-click on the Get Office app, and select Uninstall. You’ll be asked to confirm the deletion; do so. You are done.
Like we said earlier, there are other ways you can disable annoying ads without uninstalling Get Office from your operating system. Open the Start menu and head to Settings > System > Notifications & actions. Scroll down to the “Show notifications from these apps” section and slide the Get Office app’s slider to off. You are done!
