Hi Madison,
When you do the Alt F and settings, be sure to tab to get into what you want
and then you can down arrow to it. I ran into the same issue as you did and
then I realized Bill said tab. I did that and it was there.

Thanks for this Bill; however when I go to settings the only stuff that
shows up is things about my profile, there don't seem to be any other
categories. Any idea why this might be and what I can do about it?

Hi, Madison. All this annoying stuff is in Settings>Privacy, search and
services, in Edge.

1. Open Edge.
2. Press ALT plus F, followed by the letter S for Settings.
3. TAB once to the settings categories, and arrow down to Privacy, Search
and Services, and press ENTER.
4. There will be several Check boxes, and you don't want them to say
checked, if you don't want to hear about them when you are in Edge.
5. The check boxes are as follows, with new ones being added in new updates,

Save time and money with Shopping in Microsoft Edge Show opportunities to
support causes and nonprofits you care about Show travel recommendations in
Microsoft Edge

The other thing you might want to turn off is also in Settings, (ALT plus F,
followed by S), under the category, Edge Bar.

Automatically open Edge bar when the computer starts

Make sure this is unchecked, or you may have all sorts of suggestions
popping up.

Hi all,
Whenever I open Microsoft Edge to do a search I either get breaking news
alerts or search suggestions (Amazon, Facebook and many other things) before
I've even typed anything into the search box. Before anyone asks these are
not things that I set up previously that I now want to get rid of Can anyone
tell me how to stop both of these things from happening? Using latest
versions of Edge, Jaws and Windows 11.
