Default suppressing Windows notice

Hello,

How can I get rid of this:



It gives me the option to "Remind me later" and "Review settings" but there is "don't show this again".

It comes up at least once a day. How can I suppress this forever? Thanks.

Install Windows 10.

But seriously have you tried to change your settings yet?

I'd review the settings personally. Probably easier than googling for a long winded alternative

It's basically Microsoft's way of saying a new big update is available and they want you to get it and until you get it they will keep nagging you.

Sounds like they are still being pushy, pushy again, Just like back when 10 first came out and they were pushing everyone to upgrade.

If there is a "HideMCTLink" keyword, change the value to 1

If not, right click > New DWORD > Name it "HideMCTLink" > Set Value to 1

Reboot.

I don't get any notifications so it has to be a setting. I went with settings that kept everything from being shown automatically.

Thanks iPwn, we'll see if this works. I'm rebooting as we speak.

Double check that registry setting. Windows can sometimes reset those after updates, but that's the solution suggested even by M$ so, that should disable it unless an update re-enables it.

Check through all your settings and turn off every one that gives 'helpful tips, advice and information'.

Default Re: suppressing Windows notice

It'll be a specific Windows Update that pushed through this notification. As previously mentioned, to get rid of I would assume you'd need to either:
A) Change the registry value
or
B) Roll back to before the update and stop it automatically updating

Neither are particularly clean options!

Same on all my PCs. That's really all it takes. Windows still gives the user the ability to control all the sttings they just reorganized their locations.
You can still make the old god mode folder to find everything faster until you learn the actual OS layout.
I have never had to go poking around in the registry to change any settings. I have done it to change things like the image on the PC properties screen and to change the images for startup and shutdown; just basic customization things I like to do.

That goes for me too, I have never changed anything in the registry on this machine. I have done it in the past when I used to use Windows XP back in the day but that was for doing small tweaks.

It's not the kind of notification you are able to disable. The notifications being referred to are those that appear on the bottom right in a grey box.

Your best bet is to click "Review Settings" and just untick all the boxes for permissions etc. I did and haven't had the pop-up since.

Then you are able to disable it.
