    Do you have to have the preview pain turned on in explorer? I'm not seeing anything either and getting curious as to why? And I haven't turned off show sync provider notifications. I have the preview pain turned off though.

    I've seen this ad twice, always when clicking on Quick Access in File Explorer. Local account and everything in Privacy Settings disabled (off).

    Hello @wordsworth, :)

    This will turn it off for you if you like.

    Thanks Brink. I was aware of a way to shut it off but in truth an ad like that does not bother me much, or for MS Office etc in Live tiles. Microsoft is a commercial enterprise and in the business of selling things and I have expected with Windows as a service that things like this would occur. If the ads are kept toned down and not neon signs flashing in our eyes I'll not complain much. If they don't keep a low key approach as I think this ad is, then that will be a problem and Linux looms.

    Interesting. I have sync provider checked and have never seen any adds. I have Windows Pro retail.

    I have Windows 10 Pro retail as well since the free upgrade version went with a computer that I gave away, although this install is now a digital license.
