How To Disable Online Tips in Windows 10 Settings

As new editions of Windows 10 are released, in this case, the 1709 version, we find a series of new features, improvements and additions.

One of these additions are the various tips which are located in the right section of the desktop where we will see how to use of the operating system and, in some cases, we can even see video tutorials on how to perform an action.

Through this tutorial, we want to explain how to disable these tips in Windows 10.

This option applies to Windows 10 Pro and Enterprise editions.

1. To access this editor, we will use the Windows  WIN + R key combination and execute the command gpedit.msc and press Enter or OK.

2. Go to:
