    When able, you can check on the PC using the tutorial below to see if the phone is still linked to the PC or not.

    Unlink iPhone or Android Phone from Windows 10 PC
    Yes, I've done both of those and it's not linked in the MS Online accounts or in the Windows 10 settings.

    Interesting. You might see if turning off "Share across devices" on the PC may stop it.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I've tried this too and it's still showing notifications for calls on my PC.

    OK, I've found the culprit not in an app (although there may still be something in the "foreground" that's causing this) but in the services. I stopped the Phone Service and that seems to have done it.

    Thanks for your suggestions

    I must admit that I'm at a loss as well for why you're still getting call notifications on the PC from your phone when the Your Phone app has been uninstalled, the phone is unlinked, etc...

    If you haven't already, look under Get notifications from these senders to see if anything from the phone may be listed to turn off like in option 3 below.
