    Weird things start happening when I join any Microsoft Windows Forum~

    How closely is this group tied in Directly with Microsoft Corporation?
    Anytime I join any group that offers help with MS Windows 10 I start getting unsolicited bug about trying MS-Edge.
    If I need help I will ask for it!

    The first MS related forums was Microsoft Community. Every blasted time my computer would go into sleep or standby mode the first thing I would notice on a Google Chrome tab would be a tab window about Microsoft Help? I finally had to use a Google Chrome Store Extension "Block Site"

    This morning the first thing I see after taking my computer out of sleep mode was an unsolicited tab from Microsoft about Windows 10 help. By unsolicited I mean that from out of nowhere I get something from Microsoft Corporation about windows 10 help. I did not do a google search right before I cut my computer off before I went to sleep about anything to do with Microsoft. I use Edge ever once in a blue moon. Mainly to look at what time on Saturday and Sunday a PGA golf tournament will start or if one of my favorite CBS programs will have a new episode. I cannot watch reruns because I remember too much of the episode. I have great long time memory capacity. I use Edge even less now by going directly to my local channels web page and look at their tv schedule.

    I maybe over sensitive but hand holding ended with I am long past that!

    That's not a bug, it's an advert from Microsoft You will also see it on many more microsoft pages If you land on a MS Page and you are not using their latest browser you are suggested that you should be.

    You have three options

    1. Switch to Edge
    2. Don't visit any Microsoft pages
    3. Accept it for what it is and try to ignore it

    We are not in any way associated with Microsoft, and we do not show ads to any signed in member, (guests will see adverts from an agency to help cover costs ) so you should not see this little annoyance here

    Welcome to TenForums by the way
