Bing, the default search engine on Windows, may not be your favorite but Windows wants to convince you to try it.

Everyone has their favorite browser and also their favorite search engine or, many times, they go with the one they are used to and for many people it is not Bing even if they use Edge, the browser created by Microsoft for Windows.

How do you surf the web? If you use Edge, watch out for this pop up from Microsoft – Sjbeez

But the company doesn’t give up and obviously tries to convince more and more users to give a chance to the search engine that always remains a little behind the competition. Overall, Microsoft seems to have a passion for a genre of advertising that perhaps risks being a little aggressive. After what was done on Xbox when Modern Warfare 3 was supposed to be released, now (annoying) pop ups are arriving for Windows users too. Deleting them isn’t a big deal but that’s not what’s making users angry.

Microsoft wants you to try Bing, but pop-ups are useless

The situation that has arisen with a large part of internet users around the world who use Chrome as a browser and Google as a search engine is the result of a combination of other situations that in the past made browsing on other browsers inefficient. Over recent times, however, the number of browsers has increased and even historic products have finally found their dimension. Among those that are now extremely more valid than the first time they were offered to the public are Microsoft Edge and Bing.

How Microsoft offers Bing to users

Having abandoned the role of Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge now allows you to have an optimal browsing experience with the addition, according to Windows claims, a good dose of privacy when it comes to the management of your personal data. One of the functions that the company has been focusing on lately is protection from cyber attacks.

Knowing that Microsoft Edge in combination with Bing can be a good choice to protect yourself should certainly have the aim of pushing users to try this combination of browser and search engine but if to push these users when they decide to use Microsoft Edge with Google a pop up appears to change the settings, perhaps the communication needs to be reviewed.

To underline this strange way of communicating with users, an app developer on the social network that once was Twitter, who posted a screenshot of the message with which Microsoft tries to convince them to maintain the recommended settings, including Bing.

It is worth underlining that, however, even when you try to change the default search engine within Chrome compared to Google you are greeted by an almost identical message and it is therefore not an absolute novelty. Perhaps however, precisely to appeal to users who have not yet decided to give Edge and Bing a chance, Microsoft should think of a communication system that does not follow what others have done.
