OneDrive ads appeared in Windows 10’s File Explorer

Some people reported seeing notifications to sign up for the Microsoft’s cloud storage service —OneDrive – when open a new File Explorer window at the top of the Quick Access view.

In an email to The Verge, Microsoft said that the OneDrive pop-up is a “tip” and that notifications can be stopped altogether if someone chooses. “The new tips notifications within the File Explorer in Windows 10 were designed to help Windows 10 customers by providing quick, easy information to enhance the experience relative to storage and cloud file management,”.

Although the ad can be dismissed, it’s still a frustrating intrusion. You have to paid the price of licensee to use when bought a computer running Windows Operation System and operating systems have typically been ad free.

In October, someone on Reddit also reported seeing OneDrive ad to sign into this cloud storage service. But this time is clearly an ad, with Microsoft displaying the service’s price and letting people click a button to “learn more” about it.
