    How to Turn On or Off Show Narrator Home when Narrator Starts in Windows 10


    Narrator is a screen-reading app built into Windows 10.

    Starting with Windows 10 build 17704, when Narrator launches, a new Quickstart tutorial experience will be available. The Narrator Quickstart will help you get up and running quickly with Narrator. It teaches the basics of using Narrator, such as learning the keys on your keyboard, navigation, the most used commands etc. At the end of the Quickstart there is a link to the User Guide where you can continue learning about Narrator.

    Starting with Windows 10 build 18298, Narrator Home replaced Narrator QuickStart. Every time you turn on Narrator, you will be taken to Narrator Home by default, which gives you one place where you can access everything you need for Narrator—whether you want to change your settings or learn Narrator basics with QuickStart.

    Narrator Home will show by default when the Heads up! Narrator keyboard changes message is closed.

    If you turn off show Narrator Home when Narrator starts, then Narrator Home will be minimized by default when Narrator starts.

    This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off show Narrator Home when Narrator starts for your account in Windows 10.
