Windows 10 has introduced numerous features and the Action Center is one of them. It displays notifications from classic desktop apps, Universal apps, and the system. When new notifications arrive, the Action Center displays a toast banner above the taskbar. If you find this behavior annoying, you can disable Action Center notifications in Windows 10.
Luckily, Microsoft probably realized not everyone will find these notifications useful so the Settings app includes several options which allow you to disable Action Center notifications in Windows 10 globally or on a per-app basis.
How to disable Action Center notifications in Windows 10
Launch the Settings app and navigate to System -> Notifications & actions.
By default the option ‘Get notification from apps and other senders’ is enabled so if you want to stop receiving notifications in the Action Center simply disable it. Nevertheless, be aware this means you won’t be getting notifications from any application.
If you want to disable them for individual apps, follow the steps below.
On the same screen, scroll down a bit until you get to the section called ‘Get notifications from these senders’. Now you have two options. If you want to disable all notifications from a specific app click on the toggle next to it and it will be set to the Off position.
Nevertheless, you can further customize what notifications you see from that app if you click on it. Another Settings pane will open which looks like the image below:
You can disable the option called ‘Show notifications in action center’ and keep notifications banners on, so you will still receive info updates from that app, just not in the Action Center. Furthermore, you can also disable the notification sound, set how many notifications are visible in the Action Center and even assign the app a priority level.
However, you won’t have these options if you choose to disable an app’s notifications globally so you must keep those enabled and enter the Settings screen pictured above in order to fine-tune the available options.
