Windows 10 holds a wide array of useful features that can make our lives easier, but personal preference always wins out, so if there is anything you’d like to turn off or not see again it’s nice and easy to make that happen.

Want to get rid of the advertisements in Windows 10 too? We have a guide for that right here.

Notifications can be distracting if you’re running multiple programs at once, as they will pop up at the bottom right of your screen no matter what you’re doing. We’re going to show you how to turn them off.

How to disable notifications in Windows 10

  • Click on the All Settings button found at the top right, with the cog wheel icon.
  • Select System at the top left of the following Window.
