Windows 10 is stuffed with new changes, from the interface to the features! However, not all of the features were well received. One of the features the users would like to turn off is notifications, push notifications, and pop-ups in particular. And it seems pretty clear why. Oftentimes when working on your computer, you need to concentrate. It can be difficult if you constantly get notified.
Keep reading to learn how you can stop Windows 10 notifications.
1. Go to the Notifications & actions window. To do so you can:
1.1 Press the Start button => Settings => System => Notifications & actions.
1.2. Click the Action Center icon (it’s located at the bottom-right corner) => All Settings. You’ll see Windows Settings. Select System => find Notifications & actions on the left side of the screen.
2. After that, look at the right side of the window. Below the subheading which says Notifications you’ll find all of your options for Windows 10 push notification. Disable any or all of them.
That’s it! Now you will have control over push notifications and pop-ups.
However, there’s a little more to it.
