Notifications are one of the most useful elements of modern operating systems. Indeed, Windows 10 notifications are a perfect example. Thanks to them, users can find out everything that happens on the computer. To do this, the system uses sound alerts and on-screen information. Additionally, this is very useful since it allows the user to know about social network updates, news, upgrades and others. However, there are times when it is not convenient to have notifications active in Windows 10. For example, when watching a movie on full screen or playing a game. Or simply when you need to concentrate for study or work. In that case, today we will see how to customize and disable Windows 10 notifications.
There are many customization options for notifications in Windows 10.
As Windows 10 evolves, its features are more varied. Indeed, the user has a wide possibility to change the notifications. To do so, just go to the Notifications and Actions center. In addition, there are several methods to go to this menu. First, follow this path: Windows Settings>System>Notifications & Actions. You can also type Notifications in the search bar.
Another way is to click on the Action Menu and then scroll up to Manage notifications.
Either way you will be redirected to the Notifications and Actions center. Once there, there are the options available for notifications. First, if you do not want to receive any notifications, then turn off the first switch.
However, by turning on the switch you can customize several options. For example, receive notifications on the lock screen or allow notification sounds.
However, it is also possible to limit the notifications of specific apps. With this in mind, just scroll down. Then turn the notifications off or on depending on the sender.
In addition, it is possible to configure the notification mode of a specific sender. With this intention, click on the app. Once in the menu you can configure items such as banners or appearance in the action menu. Also, if a sound is allowed when the notification arrives and other elements.
Using the concentration assist to mute the notifications.
We still have another method for silencing notifications. We are talking about the concentration assist. As its name suggests, it allows you to mute notifications at specific times. That is, the notifications still arrive at the Action Menu, but they do not produce sound or show banners. To use it, just click on the Action Menu. Then expand the quick actions and finally click on Focus Assist
By clicking on the menu, you can see the different options. Only Priorities, Only Alarms and Off.
Very well, this way we have seen how to customize and disable notifications in Windows 10. This allows to increase the productivity and to diminish the distractions. Before saying goodbye, I invite you to see our post about installing MinGW in Windows 10. Bye!
