Disable Microsoft suggestions on Windows 10

On my start menu I have some unwanted suggestions/ads, to disable them with the GUI go to windows settings and search for :

  • in english Show suggestions occasionally in Start
  • in french Afficher occasionnellement des suggestions dans le menu Démarrer

and disabled it !

But I am curious and I wanted to know where this setting was stored :) In general this kinds of stuff are in the windows registry, but it’s big.

  • Open regedit
  • File / Export in a “before.reg” file
  • Change the setting
  • Export again the HKEY_CURRENT_USER in a “after.reg” file
  • Compare the files

And the key is …


… and you have some other keys in the folder [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager]

Here is the list that I have changed from 1 to 0



I just left the RotatingLockScreenEnabled and RotatingLockScreenOverlayEnabled because I like it :)
