    As stated previously, Windows 10 has created a Notification Center to view and respond to alerts and notifications from your PC. Users may customize their notification center in the settings menu. Notification settings may be changed by opening Windows 10 settings, and navigating to the System area of settings, and then to “Notifications and Actions”. The options at the top of this screen allow you to change “Quick Actions”. Quick Actions are the first settings a user can view in the Notification Center. If you click the link “Select which icons appear on the taskbar” you’ll be able to decide how crowded or sparse the system tray is, or you can just turn them all “Off”. Scrolling down in this area, you may also change global settings for notifications that affect all of Windows 10 notifications- deciding whether to view tips about windows, application notifications, notifications on the lock screen, alarms, reminders and calls, and notifications during presentations. There are also options to turn off notifications from specific apps. So, if you don’t want to disable app notifications wholesale, but still don’t want to see them from certain ones, you can selectively disable them.
