Microsoft’s Windows 11 aggressively promotes its products, such as Edge browser, via fullscreen pop-ups

On April 29th, according to foreign media reports, several netizens have recently reported that their Windows 11 devices have displayed a fullscreen window for “completing computer setup,” which closely resembles the initial setup for a new computer.

However, this fullscreen window is not popping up on new computers, but rather on devices that have been in use for some time. Even on computers that have already completed the initial setup, the system continues to display these windows for recommendations.

In these windows, Microsoft promotes several of its own products, including using OneDrive for cloud file backup, setting the Edge browser as the default browser, and subscribing to the Microsoft 365 package, and more.

At the bottom right of the window, there are two options, “Continue” and “Remind me in three days.” After selecting “Remind me in three days,” the system will display this window again after three days.

Despite Microsoft’s aggressive approach, users are still given the choice to skip, and they can freely choose a browser other than the system’s default recommendation, Edge browser.

This month, Microsoft has also started pushing fullscreen pop-ups to Windows 10 computer users who do not meet the requirements for upgrading to Windows 11, reminding them that Windows 10 support will end on October 14, 2025.
