Turn Off Microsoft Office Advertising in Windows 10

Windows 10 is — until July 29, 2016 — a free update for everyone who had Windows 7 SP1 and Windows 8.1. That’s great and we think Windows 10 is an exceptional operating system — the best since Windows XP. But that does not mean Windows 10 does not have its annoyances. One of them, as it has recently come to our attention, is Windows 10’s Get Office notifications which try to get you to buy or upgrade Microsoft Office. If you already Microsoft Office 2016 installed, you get a reprieve from the Get Office notifications, everyone else will be reminded to “Get Office”.

If you have no intention of upgrading or buying office or just don’t want to constantly be reminded to Get Office. we’re going to show you how to turn it off so you never see it again.

To turn off Get Office notifications:

  1. Press the Windows Key + i  to open Settings (or click Start —> Settings)
  2. Click System
  3. Click Notifications & actions
  4. Scroll down until you see “Show notifications from these apps”
  5. Find “Get Office” and turn it Off (see below)

Windows will not longer nag you to “Get Office”.

And.. while you’re there turn off other notifications you don’t want or don’t need.

    Thank you for the tip on getting rid of Get Office notifications on Windows 10. I read every news letter you send and find them most helpful. I just went on to Windows 10 and so far I really like it, had windows 8 and that was terrible. So once again thanks for all your tips.

    While we are on the subject of turning OFF notices, is there a way for us , who want to stay with Windows 7, to turn OFF the notices to up grade to Windows 10?

    I tried to turn off Microsoft Office Advertising and the on/off choice is grayed out. Tried to right click and got nothing.

    Thank you so much.
