How to Turn On or Off Showing Notifications in Action Center in Windows 10

information   Information
The Action Center in Windows 10 collects and shows notifications and alerts from traditional Windows applications and system notifications, alongside those generated from modern apps. Notifications are then grouped in the Action Center by app and time. When the Action Center gets a new notification, it will briefly show a notification banner above the taskbar notification area to let you know.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off showing notifications in action center from specific apps and senders for your account in Windows 10.

Note   Note
This will not affect showing notification banners above the taskbar notification area.

Here's How:

1. Open Settings, and click/tap on the System icon.

2. Click/tap on Notifications & actions on the left side, and click/tap on the app or sender (ex: Alarms & Clock) under Get notifications from these senders on the right side. (see screenshot below)

If the listed apps and senders under Get notifications from these senders are grayed out, then you have notifications completely turned off.

You will only see apps and senders listed that you had already gotten notifications from.
