How to Turn On or Off Notification Banners from Senders in Windows 10


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 notification banners from specific apps and senders for your account in Windows 10.

This will not affect showing notifications in action center.



EXAMPLE: "Alarms & Clock" notification banner

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.
