Manage Windows 10 Notifications


Finally, Windows 10 took an Action center to the desktop OS which permits you to record the notifications from different parts of the operating system, apps, email, and other areas.

Keep an eye on the notifications because we should know the detailed information about when the notifications are received, just like Windows phone 8.1 does.

Quiet Hours is one option to mute and unmute the visual and audible notifications in windows 10 but it is used for disabling notifications temporarily. You can easily configure quick access to that button in the Action Center.


The next option is to turn off the master alert toggle for not receiving any notifications but that seems trying to drive a nail with a hammer.

So let us take a good process which really set up the notifications in Windows 10 and just keep your apps what you need.

To begin open up the Settings app – a shortcut to this is located in the Start Menu.

To start the processes open the Settings app.

Click/ tap on System from the main page of the Settings app

From the System page click/tap on Notifications & actions.
