I don’t know what Embarcadero thinks they can accomplish by showing their customers an annoying ad banner for the product they have already bought, but I don’t like that and this post helped me to get rid of it.

There are two steps:

  1. Locate the file that is being displayed. There are multipe default.htm files in your Delphi 10 Seattle installation. The one being displayed is the one in the subfolder under Welcomepage that corresponds to your language. In my case it was
    d:\Delphi\Delphi_10\Welcomepage\en\default.htm
  2. Open this file in a text editor and let it search for “topbanner”. There is a <div> with this name. You can either simply delete it, or place html comments
    <!-- ... --> 

    around it. (I did the latter.)

If you are feeling adventurous, you could also make additional changes, e.g. add a link to the Delphi category of my blog:

<div>
<a href="http://blog.dummzeuch.de/category/delphi/feed/">blog.dummzeuch.de/Delphi</a>
</div>

Or if you want to see the built-in browser crash, you could add a link to my Delphi rss feed instead:

<div>
<a href="http://blog.dummzeuch.de/category/delphi/feed/">blog.dummzeuch.de/Delphi</a>
</div>
