How to Add or Remove Sites for Microsoft Edge Web Notifications in Windows 10


Microsoft Edge is a new web browser that is available across the Windows 10 device family. It is designed for Windows 10 to be faster, safer, and compatible with the modern Web.

Starting with Windows 10 build 14342, Microsoft Edge now supports real-time web notifications, which allow participating websites to send notifications to you via Action Center, with your permission.

Microsoft Edge now supports web push notifications via the Push API, beginning with the Windows 10 April 2018 Update.
