    How to turn off "news" notifications?


    Is there a way to turn off the notifications that pop up in my right lower corner of the screen or even better to choose what type of notifications show up there?

    Last night I noticed some sort of News headline about the gunfire in Ferguson Missouri but I don't have any news programs on my computer (unless W10 installed something) and I don't really want to see popups that mean nothing to me.

    So, I wouldn't mind getting notifications for things like LOCAL severe weather alerts but I don't really want to be getting News headlines from areas that I'm not even located in.

    Hello Trijan,

    Sure, you can. The tutorial below will show you how to turn on/off app notifications for all apps or just specific ones.
