This guide will walk you through three methods to turn off Tips and Suggestions notifications on Windows 11: using the Settings app, Group Policy (for Windows 11 Pro, Enterprise, or Education editions), and the Windows Registry.

Method 1: Disable Tips and Suggestions Notifications via Settings:
To begin, press Windows key + I to open the Settings menu. In the left-hand column, locate and click on “System.”
Scroll down and select “Notifications” from the right-hand column.
In the Notifications section, scroll down and click on “Additional settings.” Now, simply uncheck the “Get tips and suggestions when using Windows” option to disable the notifications.
That’s it! Once you’ve completed these steps, Tips and Suggestions notifications will no longer appear on your Windows 11 PC. Should you decide to re-enable them later, return to the Settings menu and recheck the “Get tips and suggestions when using Windows” option.
Method 2: Turn Off Tips and Suggestions Notifications via Group Policy (For Windows 11 Pro, Enterprise, or Education):
Press the Windows key + R to open the Run dialog. Type “gpedit.msc” and click OK or press Enter.
Inside the Local Group Policy Editor, navigate to:
Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Cloud Content
Find and double-click on the “Do not show Windows tips” policy in the right pane.
When the policy window appears, select “Enabled,” and then click “Apply” and “OK” to save the changes.
“Restart your Windows 11 PC, and Tips and Suggestions notifications will no longer bother you.”
Method 3: Disable Tips and Suggestions Notifications via the Windows Registry:
If you’re using a Windows 11 edition other than Pro, Enterprise, or Education, you can still disable Tips and Suggestions notifications by making changes in the Windows Registry. “If you can’t disable these notifications through the Settings app, we recommend this approach.”
Press the Windows key + R to open the Run dialog. Type “regedit” and click OK or press Enter.
In the Registry Editor, navigate to:
If the “CloudContent” key does not exist, you can create it by right-clicking the “Windows” folder, selecting “New > Key,” and naming it “CloudContent.”
Within the “CloudContent” folder, right-click an empty area in the right panel, and choose “New > DWORD (32-bit) Value.”
Name the new DWORD “DisableSoftLanding” and press Enter. Double-click “DisableSoftLanding,” set its value to 1, and click OK.
After completing these steps, close the Registry Editor and restart your PC. Upon signing back in, Tips and Suggestions notifications will no longer be a distraction. To re-enable them, return to the Registry and set the value of “DisableSoftLanding” data to 0.
Disabling Windows 11 Tips and Suggestions notifications can help you achieve a less distracting Windows experience, allowing you to focus and be more productive.

While Tips and Suggestions notifications in Windows 11 are intended to enhance the user experience, some users may find them distracting or prefer a more streamlined workspace. Disabling these notifications can help maintain focus and productivity when using your PC.
