It probably sounds strange for a Windows tips article to have a title like, “No More Tips”. It was my meager attempt at humor. Actually, I’m talking about the Windows 10 Tips, Tricks, and Suggestions that can inundate you. They can even be a small privacy problem if you don’t like Microsoft watching your every move.
When you get the itch and buy that brand new computer, or run a clean installation of Windows, those “Tips and Tricks” are going to be turned on by default. This Quick Tips article will show you how to turn them all off.
Getting To The Setting
- Use the Windows key + I to open Settings
- Choose System
- Choose Notifications & actions
That should bring you here:
Once you have unchecked the indicated box, Windows will no longer pester you with suggestions. It might pester you in other imaginative ways, though.
At the top of this list, there is a toggle to switch notifications On and Off. Some notifications can be extremely helpful, so I suggest you leave that turned On.
If you scroll down the window a bit, you will see a list of all the utilities, programs, and applications that Windows can offer notifications for. They all have an associated toggle switch so you can turn them On/Off on a per-program basis. By clicking on one of those items in the list, you will be able to choose whether you want Banners, notifications in the Action Center, both, or neither. You can turn the sound on/off, too. Nice…
