How to Personalize your Windows 10 Notifications

Notification means notifying someone that something has happened. Notifications tell you what is going on with your computer. It acts as a messenger alerting you when some application or process has performed a specific task. If Windows does not provide this feature then you will not be able to determine its actions.

But if you get notifications all the time, there is a great chance that you can get exasperated. A disproportionate and enormous number of notifications from every other software can reduce your lack of performance because you can easily get distracted by the sound or by the alert message.

Duration of an application’s notification on the screen can also be annoying but you don’t need to worry because Tech Chunky gives you the answer to managing these problems. Windows 10 provides its user the ability to change the notification settings.

A user can personalize settings according to his/her habits, use and time frame. The Action Center is responsible for managing notifications in Windows.

Limiting the number of Notification

If it is disturbing for you to deal with numerous notifications then you can limit them by keeping in mind the underlying steps:

  • Select the Windows Start menu and click on Settings
  • Select the System option and then select “Notifications & Actions”
  • Scroll to find the option “Get notifications from these senders
  • Toggle off the button of the application you don’t want to receive notifications from

It is also important to set notifications on the lock screen because only the most significant and vital notifications should appear there. There is an option for that as well which is:

  • Under the notifications option, there is an option named “Show notifications on the Lock Screen
  • Turn it on or off to set notifications on the lock screen or not

Setting notification Time

The time duration for which a notification stays on the screen can be adjusted by the following steps:

  • Select the Windows Start menu and click on Settings
  • Select “Ease of Access” option
  • Under the visual display menu, there appears an option named ”Show notifications for” with a drop-down menu
  • Select the time you want a notification to stay static on the screen

Turning off Notification Badge from the Taskbar

Windows has a taskbar appearing at the bottom of the screen. When an application’s notification appears, it is also displayed at the bottom right. This type of notification is called a Badge. You can also make it disappear by doing the following:

  • Select the Windows Start menu and click on Settings
  • Select Personalization option and then select Taskbar
  • There will be an option named as “Show badges on taskbar
  • Toggle off that option to make the badge disappear

Enabling “Use small taskbar button” will grey out the “Show badges on taskbar”. Turn off the “Use small Taskbar” option to make badges option available again.

Making the Action Center disappear

If viewing notification from a specific application that you don’t want to see makes you feel mad then you can turn off the Action Center by:

  • Select the Windows Start menu and click on Settings
  • Select Taskbar and scroll down to the bottom
  • An option named “Turn system icons on or off”. Under that option, a toggle option named ”Show app notifications” appear
  • Toggle it on or off to make it appear or disappear

Setting priority of a notification

There are certain apps whose notifications are most important to you. You can prioritize them by following the steps given below:

  • Select the Windows Start menu and click on Settings
  • Select the System option and select “Notifications & Actions
  • Scroll to find the app whose notification you want to prioritize
  • Click on that app and turn on the top radio button from a list of priorities

Turning off notifications during a Presentation

If you are in a presentation and want no distractions and interferences from any other applications then follow the underlying steps:

  • Select the Windows Start menu and click on Settings
  • Select the System option and select “Notifications & Actions”
  • Under the notification section, an option will be available named as “Hide notifications when I am duplicating my screen
  • Toggle off that option to make notifications disappear during a presentation
