Annoying Pop-up ads
How do I put a stop to those annoying pop-up ads? Open to any suggestions, big or small. Thanks.
Noticed a category
I see there is a category, Security & Privacy. And it says, "Get tips..." I have a tip or 2 for this: It's high complex... (J/K 😂) 1. Use Windows 10. LOL That's it. Well, except don't add any 3rd Party stuff to it, the OBE is fine. And that takes care of the 1st part... except for whatever the End User does OR doesn't do. 2. Use Edge 2.a In Edge, block 3rd Party cookies & set Tracking prevention to Strict. Ad blocking & Pop-up blocking are on by default 3. Don't visit porn sites. 4. Don't click on anything unfamiliar in Emails or anything in Emails from unfamiliar or unknown sources. 5. Spend no time on a phone with incoming callers saying they are from MS. 6. Store critical data in the cloud; OneDrive or something similar. 7. 10 fights ransomware. As for privacy... don't give out personal info, create & use bold/strong P/Ws, change them often and use Family Controls. The idea that one's privacy is at risk with Win10 is 100% false & a myth. And YT vids & other sources saying turn stuff off in Win10 or say "No" to stuff is completely wrong & based on a severe lack of accurate understanding... Attention is paid to computer use to improve Windows 10 for everyone, globally... NO personal data is of interest OR collected. There are so many protections & safeguards between Edge & Win10, just be glad, relax & enjoy Cheers, Drew

I've been mainly using Bing for the past 3 months on Windows
I've been mainly using Bing search engine in the last 3 months. this is my honest opinion. I enjoy Bing more than Google because Bing has a better layout, Bing has so much more features, like when I want to reverse image search, It shows me the name of the person in the picture or in cases where there is a text in the picture, it uses OCR (Optical Character Recognition) to let me copy the text from the pic and automatically search for it. Bing also gives me lots of categories in image searches. I did a side by side comparison of a subject just yesterday. in Google there was no categories to suggest but Bing suggested lots of categories at top, they were so specific that I was surprised how far it went. Bing has Microsoft Rewards and what it means is that you get points when you do normal searches, you don't need to go to Bing Rewards dashboard to do any additional tasks, but if you want you can and get even more points. These points accumulate and once they reach a certain amount, you can redeem them for a wide range of prizes. I usually redeem them monthly to get free Xbox game pass which I can use to play all news AAA games on PC and Xbox. so basically I always and forever have free game subscription. Bing is integrated into Cortana on Windows 10 which means I don't have to open a browser to type anything, I simply press Windows key and start typing and it shows me search results, when I click on a result, it opens it on the new Edge browser which is my default browser and it's also better than Google Chrome for a long list or reasons. (de-googled browser, Tracking Prevention, Collections, Reading view and all of its features, Read Aloud with custom natural voice etc etc..). Bing also gives me peace of mind knowing that my data and privacy is being handled by a company that revolves around providing services and not data mining. Bing has really and i mean REALLY improved in the last few years and that's why I'm writing this because I'm simply impressed.

watching videos here in the community shows nothing
Why is it that when I go to a topic or topics to watch videos, I see only blank screen? I can hear sounds and see the subtitles, but no images. I am using Edge.
The tracking prevention feature in Microsoft Edge is made up of three main components that work together to determine whether a specific resource from a website should be classified as a tracker and blocked.

Everything works fine except tracking prevention. It always reports zero trackers blocked, no matter what websites I visit or what blocking method I use "Balanced" or "Strict". The same list of websites on my girlfriend's Windows 10 machine do have trackers blocked successfully when visiting with MS Edge Chromium.
