The usefulness of push notifications in alerting you to messages and updates cannot be overstated. As useful as notifications from apps and web browsers are, they can quickly divert your attention away from the activity at hand, reducing your productivity. As a result, it’s more crucial than ever to properly manage such notifications.
Thankfully, Windows 11 includes a few options for streamlining your notification experience. To help you take charge of things, we’ll show you how to enable, disable, and manage notifications on Windows 11. So, let’s get this party started.
On Windows 11, How Do I Enable Or Disable Notifications
First, let’s look at how you can use the redesigned Settings app to instantly enable or disable notifications on your Windows 11 PC.
Step 1: To open the Settings app, open the Start menu and select the Settings icon. Alternatively, you can fast access settings by pressing Windows key + I.
Step 2: Go to the System tab on the left and then to the Notifications option on the right in the Settings app.
Step 3: To completely stop notifications on your Windows 11, turn off the switch next to Notifications.
You can also turn the switch back on to allow apps to send notifications to your PC.
How To Manage Notifications For Specific Apps
You can miss a few essential reminders and emails if you’ve turned off all alerts on Windows 11 to avoid being disturbed. Windows 11 now allows you to configure notifications per-app to ensure that you always receive alerts and messages from critical apps. Continue reading to find out how.
Step 1: On your PC, press Windows key + I to open the Settings app. Go to the System tab and select Notifications from the drop-down menu.
Step 2: Go to the ‘Notifications from apps and other senders’ area and scroll down. A list of apps and senders that can send you alerts may be found here. To enable or disable notifications for these apps, toggle the corresponding switches next to them.
Aside from the approach described above, you can also block notifications for certain apps from the Notification Center if you have already received a notification from that app. Here’s how to do it.
Step 1: Click the time and date icon in the bottom right corner to open the notification centre.
In Windows 11, you may also open Notification Center by pressing Windows key + N.
Step 2: Open the app and look for a notification you want to turn off. Choose ‘Turn off all notifications for [AppName]’ from the three-dot menu icon.
If you’ve chosen to enable notifications for a specific programme, there are a few more settings you can tweak to make your notification experience on Windows 11 even better.
Activate Or Deactivate The Notification Banner
Navigate to Notification settings in the Settings app. To explore further notification settings, click on the app. Now select whether or not the app should display a notification banner using the checkboxes. You may also turn off the notification sound from this location.
Set Notifications Priority
Even if you filter out unpleasant alerts from specific apps, there’s a good risk that a critical notice will get lost in the shuffle. You can assign different priorities for notifications to guarantee that you don’t miss an essential alert by following the instructions below.
Step 1: Go to Notifications and click on the app you want to priorities.
Step 2: To set your preference for ‘Priority of notifications in notification center, choose from the Top, High, or Normal options under ‘Priority of notifications in notification center.
Once configured, notifications from the apps you care about will always appear at the top of the screen, regardless of when they were received.
Try Focus Assist On Windows 11 As A Bonus
Focus Assist is a useful Windows feature that allows you to focus on the task at hand by muting distracting messages. This is accomplished by blocking off notifications from specific apps while ensuring that apps and individuals on your priority list are always able to reach you.
On Windows 11, here’s how to set up and use Focus Assist.
Step 1: From the Taskbar, click the Search icon, type focus assist, and hit Enter.
Step 2: Enable Focus Assist by selecting either ‘Priority only’ or ‘Alarms only’ from the drop-down menu.
Apps and contacts on the priority list will be able to send notifications if you set it to ‘Priority only.’ By changing the priority list, you can add exceptions for such apps and contacts.
All alerts except Alarms will be muted if you set it to ‘Alarms only.
Additionally, at the end of your concentration session, you can select the box below to see a summary of missed notifications.
You may immediately enable the Focus assist after completing the setup by going to the Action Center in Windows 11.
While working, focus help can be a great productivity boost. You can have it active automatically during working hours and see a summary of all missed notifications at the end.
