    I guess this tutorial is getting old.
    But I just tried it to disable the repetitive ads, and it doesn't work anymore.

    Hello Stigg,

    Please go ahead and post a screenshot of what you're seeing to see if it may be for another setting instead.

    Here is one Brink. When I close one, another one pops up.
    There are probably about 5 different ones and I have to click through the lot of them to clear the OneDrive screen so I can see OneDrive without them.

    This would be the tips included with OneDrive when you click on the OneDrive icon on the taskbar notification area instead of what the tutorial is for in File Explorer.

    Usually, you can click on the X at the top right corner to close and stop these.

    The only problem with closing them with the X is that every time there is a new upload, they return, and as I said there are about 5 of them. It is annoying closing them all every time. With other software, tips are usually either showed once, or they give the user the choice to not show again.

    I hear you, but I'm not finding an available setting to turn this off.

    No problem.
    If you don't know how to turn them off, then I guess I will have to live with them.
