Ads in OneDrive Web Application?


I was just checking a photo in OneDrive from my camera roll, and I got an ad for ink and paper from Staples or Office Depot. It was a toast style notification. It appears the slippery slope is getting steeper.

Has anyone else noticed this?

    I've never seen or heard of anything like this. Are you sure it was from Microsoft? Do you have any screenshots?

      No screenshots, it was gone maybe ten seconds after it appeared, rather like a notification, except it was in the upper right, rather than the lower right, and the color scheme matched the browser.

      I run an ad-blocker and use the MVPS host file to block ads, so it would seem that it would have to have been served as part of the site. It could be javascript, I have not found a good way to block that in Edge.
