On Windows 10, after you upgrade to a new version (such as the May 2020 Update), restart your device, or you simply sign out and back into the desktop, you may now see a new "Get even more out of Windows" notification surfacing additional features that you can configure on your device.
Usually, these can be existing or new features or privacy settings available with the latest version of Windows 10. However, if you know that your installation is set up just the way you want it, or you're not interested in configuring new features or services, such as OneDrive, Timeline, Windows Hello, and others, you can disable this prompt using the Settings app.
In this Windows 10 guide, we'll walk you through the steps to disable the setup for additional features and settings after upgrading to the May 2020 Update.

To stop the prompt to complete setting up on Windows 10, use these steps:
- Open Settings.
- Click on System.

Do you guys proofread at all? Fishing? Up with that title error for 20 hours now.
No one here proofreads anything. Errors are rarely - if ever - corrected. Type it up, publish, and move on.
It's crazy they stay in business like that.
I turn all of that crap off. I don't need endless "notifications". I can check my email when I feel like checking it.
