    Win 10 1083: how to disable facts and tips in the Spotlight locksreen?

    I don't know if they'll work in Home (with a few exceptions, most seem to) but you'll find a spreadsheet listing all the group policy registry entries here...

    Thank you! Useful document.
    I've found there's a
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager > DisableThirdPartySuggestions (DWORD) = 1
    but I don't think will stop tips, just ads links probably

    There are a couple of other related policies that may help, you'll have to experiment. Try 'Turn off Microsoft consumer experiences' DisableWindowsConsumerFeatures and/or 'Do not show Windows tips' DisableSoftLanding
