    I don't think you can opt out, but you can increase your screen view to 150%, or so, and move the cursor to the right side. It will minimize the ads. I use it so I can read the posts easier..without my glasses.

      I don't get any tabloid crap on windows 10 - by Edge do you mean the Edge of your screen or the Edge browser? I just run Opera browser instead with an ad blocker. Windows trys to change the default back to Edge from time to time and I just reset it. If any one knows how to stop it doing that it would be useful.

          Don't use it then, Chrome and Opera (Opera uses the Chrome engine) are both free to download and if you also download a free adblocker and block pop ups - no more rubbish If you don't like those browsers there are plenty of others you can use.

            Select Armchair Plain at the bottom of the screen. That removes all the adware and stuff.

            To expand your screen, CONTROL and +. That's Geezer View.

                  A bigger screen just displays more adware.

                  There is also a setting for ACG Large for those with vision difficulties.

                    But Trung Si isn't complaining about adware on AMG - he's complaining about it on the Edge browser so the solution is to run a different browser with an ad blocker extension. I do that and get no adware

                      Use MarkV or Opanas methods, they will work. Just remember that's a moving target and you'll have to update or change the anti-script or adware tool occasionally. After all, that's how websites work, they depend on ad clicks so.....or just don't visit "those" websites

                        I am not talking about adware or websites, I am talking about the tabloid type news pictures and stories that are displayed with Edge!

                          As I said its simple don't use Edge - use a different browser, I use Opera that doesn't have this and also which has an ad blocker unlike Edge. What's difficult?

                              If you install another browser you don't need to go through Edge to get to it. Install a different Browser, go into settings and set it as your default browser and pin it to your start menu
