Notifications can be useful, but they can also be annoying if you’re trying to focus on something important – or perhaps giving a presentation. Windows 10 has a built-in ‘Focus Assist’ which lets you limit, or turn off, notifications. Click Start and search for it. You can also use the ‘Action Center’ icon in the bottom-right of your screen to turn it on/off – right-click for settings. Ahhh, peace and quiet…!
Within the settings you can customise your options – for example you can set it to activate whenever you share your screen, for example if you’re giving a presentation and don’t want confidential email alerts to show-up. You can also set specific times.
There are more details here – it’s a useful tool to have at your disposal.
