Disabling Windows 10 setup nag screens

Are you tired of these things popping up when you update, or even randomly on login? Believe it or not, Microsoft provided a way to turn them off.

Open the Settings app, then go to System. Here, choose Notifications & actions in the sidebar. You’ll see checkboxes for various options. The main ones you’ll want to be sure are disabled are the “Show me the Windows welcome experience…” and “Suggest ways I can finish setting up…” options.

If either of these is already off and you’re still seeing the nag screens, try turning them on and then off again.

Note that disabling notifications all together will NOT disable the welcome/setup nags.

Thanks to this article for the solution.
