Microsoft has released Windows 11 not a long time ago, and it’s refreshing after all the features that we’ve seen from it. In the last few days, Microsoft has rolled out the feature that users will be presented with ads within File Explorer. Absolutely, advertisements aren’t very welcome, be it in the file explorer or any other location within your operating system.

However, the problem is that they do not appear like advertisements at first. They’re more an attempt to promote their goods; to be honest, they aren’t quite as appealing as their creators would like to be.

Windows File Explorer is the system for managing files and Microsoft hasn’t left it unaffected. The advertisements are a complete nuisance to users, just like other advertisements they see on other sites. If you’re also bothered by these ads and would like to remove them as soon as possible, continue going through the following article.
