    How to clear Windows Notifications from Action Center?


    I would prefer to do it via a task or a command, since it is tiresome to do it by hand every single time.
    Apparently there is ToastNotificationHistory, but no idea how to apply this method to actually use it?

    I have found this, but I would rather do it without using 3rd party apps, if possible.

    Are you talking about something like this? [ Option 2 for example ] . . .

    Yes, but I do not want to disable them, just clear them, so when I boot up, I can start with a clean window.

    I just spent a while investigating this for you. There are loads of sites that tell you how to Enable and Disable them using PowerShell, C++, or the Registry etc, but nothing to clear them on Boot. I will try and have a deeper look later!

    You have given me an idea, maybe disabling it and reenabling it back, would clear it up?

    Worth a try. Let us know if it works.

    Hello @TairikuOkami,

    The .reg files to turn ON and OFF PushNotifications is . . .

    OFF [ as per the Tutorial ]
    Code:
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\PushNotifications]
    "ToastEnabled"=dword:00000000
    
    ON [ as per the Tutorial ]
    Code:
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\PushNotifications]
    "ToastEnabled"=dword:00000001
    

    Which equates into the Batch Script . . .

    OFF
    Code:
    
    Reg Add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\PushNotifications" /v ToastEnabled /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
    
    ON
    Code:
    
    Reg Add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\PushNotifications" /v ToastEnabled /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

    If the above works, perhaps you could create a Batch Script to run BOTH Batch Commands at Boot via Task Scheduler for example.

    Just a thought!

    FYI. This is over my head but I find that notifications are stored here:

    %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows\ActionCenterCache

    If I clear that and restart explorer then they're gone.

    Just curious about the words with background shading. How do you set that background? Or is it automatic in the forum software?
