Do you want to disable toast notifications once and for all?
In an earlier tutorial, I have shown you how to stop notifications on Windows 10 using the Settings App.
Today you will learn a more general approach, we are going to disable toast notifications for all of Windows 10 apps and system notifications.
We will be using the Group Policy Editor and Registry Editor.
Disable Windows 10 Toast Notifications Using Group Policy
Open your Run prompt using Windows+R keyboard shortcut, type in
gpedit.msc, hit Enter.
Go to “User Configuration” > “Administrative Templates” > “Start Menu and Taskbar” > “Notifications”
Double-click on “Turn off toast notifications“.
Check “Enabled” and click “OK“. You don’t need a restart.
Disable Windows 10 Toast Notifications Using Registry
Open the Registry Editor using the command
regedit in Run.
Go to this path:
Right-click on “Windows” and choose “New” > “Key“.
Create a new “DWORD (32-bit) Value” and name it
Change the value of “DisableNotificationCenter” to
1. Click “OK“.
There you have it!
If you have any questions or want to leave an opinion use the comment section below.
Seems to me there is a step missing in the registry method. Shouldn’t we name the new key ‘Explorer’ before creating a new “DWORD (32-bit) Value” in/under the new key?
Thanks for the info.
Windows 10 is just awful. Surprising how a company that had it all together with Windows 7 can end up releasing such an obviously inferior product. It’s been a downward spiral for Windows ever since.
Modern computing sucks
Thank you for your comment.
Im sorry Microsoft hurt your feelings buddy. You always have the option of going Linux for full blown choice…
Anyway, Windows 10 has been a great product and has offered a fair amount of improvements. Ive also been running the Windows 11 preview since it release and its been amazing for a beta. I cant wait to see the final release.
