After a very short testing period, Microsoft is rolling out ads to the Start menu for all Windows 11 users.

Microsoft announced earlier this month that it would start testing displaying recommendations in the Start menu for apps in the Microsoft Store.

The recommendations, which are essentially ads, quickly began appearing for Insider testers after that, but Microsoft is now opening its doors wide.

Windows 11 Will Introduce New Start Menu Ads for Everyone

According to The Verge, the KB5036980 update for Windows 11 will begin rolling out this week to all users.

The update adjusts how tools are displayed on the lock screen, but it also brings ads to the Start menu for everyone.

The good news here is that it’s very easy to turn off these features by going to Settings > Personalization > Start and toggling off the “Show suggestions occasionally in Start” switch.

The update is still in its early days as well, and it’s not scheduled for wide release for another few weeks.
