An example where you can't.

Let's say you use Internet Explorer and open Yahoo Email. Advertisements in Yahoo Mail are not blockable (yet.)

So for now, no. You can't unless you start using some email app like Thunderbird and then start adding to your spam filter and block lists. But folk want to use the Web mail so they will be overrun by advertising.

the adds are at the top of my mail list and change from credit cards to loans to auto ect. I can delete all but the last one. They are also missing the check box on the LH side. It is replaced with a dollar sign in a circle. Thanks for your response.

I've seen almost the same in Yahoo web email. Folk are not happy about it but there is an exit if folk go back to old fashioned email apps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
