In Windows 10, application notifications appear in the Action Center in the bottom right corner of the screen, on the toolbar.
Notifications pop up and then minimize to the Action Center. Clicking on the icon on the toolbar brings up the full Action Center panel on the right side of the screen.
You may decide that you want to turn off or change Windows 10 notifications from some apps. How do you do this in Windows 10? Here are instructions.
- Click the Start
- When the Start menu appears, begin typing “Notifications”.
- The “Best Match” option at the top will say “Notifications & actions settings”. Click on it.
- In the window that appears, scroll down to Notifications. In this section, you can choose whether you want to toggle some options on or off. For example, you can turn off getting notifications from any apps and senders.
- Scroll down to the Get notifications from these senders Here you can toggle notifications on and off for some specific apps. For example, you can modify notifications from Outlook, Skype for Business, or other installed apps that have an individual setting. (Not all apps or senders with notifications may be listed here.)
Using these Windows 10 notifications and actions settings, you can customize your app notifications. Don’t want to see a pop-up each time you receive an email in Outlook? You can turn that off. Wonder why an app’s update notifications disappeared? Check the notification settings to see if notifications from that app are turned off.
