Windows users who previously couldn't use Microsoft Edge because of the lack of plugins now have the opportunity to do so.

Windows 10 users will now be able to control the amount of ads they encounter when using Microsoft Edge with the launch of AdBlock and AdBlock Plus applications. It has been a long time coming, but now Edge users can take advantage of what these awesome extensions have to offer. they are not yet on the same level as versions on Firefox and Chrome, but in time, we expect them to be.

On 29 July, a free upgrade offer for Windows users with earlier versions of the operating system will come to an end.

Now Windows 10 is here, and it's actually very good - but many aren't ready to leave the reliability and comfort of Windows 7 behind.

While there has been no official documentation on the removal of the app, presumably, the Windows team Insider feedback and internal telemetry noted the reduced use-cases of the app.

In order to upgrade to the new Windows 10 OS, you first of all need to know that your device must be installed with a registered version of Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8.1. Administrators on Windows 10's Enterprise and Education editions still have working "Turn Off Store" options that they can toggle to block or allow access to the Windows Store. The free upgrade offer will end on July 29 and we want to make sure you don't miss out.

Mobipicker.com recommends restarting the browser if you do decide to install AdBlock and AdBlock Plus (or any of the other browser plugins that are starting to pop up in the Windows store for Microsoft Edge). "After July 29th, you'll have the capacity to keep on getting Windows 10 on another gadget, or buy a full form of Windows 10 Home for $119", said Yusuf Mehdi, corporate VP of Microsoft's Windows and Devices Group. Some admins, however, had ditched the Store for other reasons, including bandwidth consumption as scores of apps frequently updated.

The Windows 10 upgrade is available for users with activated Windows. If it has one your computer is now registered with Microsoft and Windows 10 can be installed when it suits you to do so. Developers will be able to submit new extensions to the Windows Store, but we'll have to see what compatibility looks like and how much developers jump on this.
