As you probably noticed if you’re a long-time Windows 10 users, every time you use a new feature update for the operating-system, you choose a welcome screen when you log in to the desktop once again.
This welcome screen actually includes a very simple purpose: it typically helps beginners learn how to make use of the operating system, and also at the same time frame, it shows a summary of the improvements contained in the latest feature update.
Of course, this type of welcome screen comes in handy especially to rookies, but however, it’s something which power users would gladly disable for any more straightforward approach when signing in towards the desktop following a Windows 10 feature update.
Initially, disabling the Windows 10 welcome experience isn’t necessarily a hard move to make, but Microsoft has actually included a dedicated toggle within the Settings app, and there’s a chance lots of people don’t even find it.
Like a side note, certainly one of Microsoft’s priorities in Windows 10 is discontinuing the classic User interface and moving all options to the Settings app. It is because the Settings app supplies a more modern experience that aligns using the approach Microsoft is applying for Windows 10, while the classic Control Panel belongs to the traditional push which was a part of Windows 7.
Obviously, Microsoft ditching the User interface has several drawbacks, and something of these is Windows 7 users upgrading to Windows 10 feeling lost when it comes to establishing the operating-system. And then, it’s the Settings app itself increasingly cluttered, though you must always rely on the search feature to locate something that you wish to modify in Windows 10.
Leaving aside these shortcomings, the Settings app has become Microsoft’s only focus when it comes to configuring Windows 10, and it’s also the home of an option for the welcome experience we discussed above.
Also it all comes to just a simple toggle that you’ll find in the following location:
Windows 10 > Settings app > System > Notifications & actions
The choice that you’re looking for is known as:
Show me the Windows welcome experience after updates and often after i register to highlight what’s new and suggested
The method described above will also apply to Windows 10 November 2020 Update, the newest feature update for that operating system that’s now going live gradually to devices across the world.
Not to mention, there’s an excellent chance it’ll work in the following Windows 10 feature update coming in 2021 – much like this year, Microsoft intends to unveil two feature updates the coming year, one in the spring and the other one in the fall.
Windows 10 version 21H1 will be another small update centered on underneath the hood improvements and fewer on new features, virtually just like the November 2020 Update does right now. However, the fall update expected to go live in October or November 2021 is anticipated to bring many more improvements, including new capabilities.
Earlier this week, it has emerged that Microsoft may be planning to bring Android apps to Windows 10 without resorting to the Your Phone app, and this fall update will probably be the one introducing this functionality. Needless to say, if this is the situation, we ought to expect the feature to go live first in Windows Insider builds going live in the first half of 2021.
At this point, Microsoft has always been completely tight-lipped about this topic.
