    Turned off action center, still getting popups?

    Followed this,

    Action Center - Enable or Disable in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Action center is gone, but I am still getting "Turn on Windows Firewall" and other such popups that seem to originate from the action center? How do I turn these off as well?

    Hello Culbrelai, :)

    That's only to stop seeing notifications in the action center. It won't stop notification banners above your taskbar. For that, see the tutorial below instead.

    Turning On Quiet Hours should turn off all notifications outside action center.
