Windows 10 offers suggestions and tips at various areas of the operating system. You might see suggestions on the lock screen, app suggestions on the Start, OneDrive ads in the File Explorer, and Edge ads right on the desktop.
In the recent versions, Windows 10 displays online videos in some part of the Settings app when you are viewing the Settings app in full-screen. For instance, as you can see in the picture below, it’s showing a video suggestion in the multitasking section which can be found under System category (Settings > System > Multitasking).
Luckily, the videos in the Settings app don’t play automatically and they play only when you click on the video. These videos in the Settings app can be helpful for novice users but not all users like to see tips and suggestions, especially videos in the Settings app. Most users find videos and other suggestions in the Settings app as annoying.
Luckily, there is a way to disable or remove video tips from the Settings app. However, you need to manually edit the Windows Registry for that.
Disable video tips in Settings app in Windows 10
Step 1: Open the Registry Editor. To do that, type Regedit.exe in the Start/taskbar search and then press Enter key. Click Yes button when you see the User Account Control prompt.
Step 2: In the Registry Editor, navigate to the following folder:
Step 3: On the left-pane, select Explorer folder. On the right-side, right-click on an empty spot, click New, click DWORD 32-bit Value, and then name it as AllowOnlineTips.
Step 4: Finally, double-click on AllowOnlineTips and make sure that the value data is set to 0 (zero) to turn off or disable online videos in the Settings app. Note that when you create a new value, the value data is automatically set to 0 (zero).
Open the Settings app now. You should not see any videos in any part of the Settings app. If videos are still showing up, please reboot your PC once.
