Remove Microsoft Edge advertisement

Post by jmt356 »

Beginning yesterday, whenever I type "Internet" into the Start menu, an advertisement asking me to download Microsoft Edge is the first hit. I need to scroll down to Internet Explorer, which is the browser I actually want to open. Is it possible to remove this advertisement? Some online posts suggest right-clicking and selecting unpin from Start menu, but right-clicking on it does not do anything for me.
Regards,

JMT

It might be worth a quick read of this recent post, in the Windows 10 Sub Forum.

I haven't seen a way to remove these ads, so you'll probably have to live with them...
