Windows 10 Is Now Displaying Pop-Up Ads

Everyone remembers the never-ending series of reminders to upgrade to Windows 10. After we all thought that era was safely behind us, it appears Microsoft has decided to display pop-up ads in Windows 10. Apparently, the company has started displaying messages that tell users they can “earn while you browse” by using Microsoft Edge. Reportedly, the ads are only shown to users who do not use Edge often. Ugh.
