Windows 10 may display a "Get even more out of Windows" prompt occasionally that displays additional services that users may set up. The prompt may be displayed on the first start of the device, after the installation of a feature update, or at random provided that it has not been turned off.
Microsoft launched the post-upgrade setup experience in May 2018 in Insider Preview build 17682 and we looked at the feature in January 2019 when it became clear that Windows 10 version 1903 would include it. The screen looked a bit different back then but the listed services have not changed since then.
The Get even more out of Windows prompt highlights a number of services that are powered by a Microsoft Account:
Some Windows 10 users may find the prompt useful as it allows them to set up some of these services directly. It is possible to set these up elsewhere on the system which means that the prompt's main purpose is to get more users to discover these options and use them.
It is a good idea to disable the prompt if you don't want to use any of the features or set up some of them already. The prompt may be superfluous in this case and is best disabled to speed things up.
Windows administrators and users have two options to disable the prompt on machines running Windows 10. The first option disables it in the Settings application, the second option using the Registry.
This option is the safer option as it does not require manipulating the Registry. Here is what you need to to:
You may also change a value in the Windows Registry to block the prompt on the device. We have prepared to Registry files that you can download to disable or enable the feature. You may also make the change manually if you prefer to do so.
