How to Turn On or Off Game Mode Notifications in Windows 10

information   Information
Starting with Windows 10 build 15019, a new Game Mode feature has been added that can optimize your Windows 10 PC for an improvement in game performance and best possible experience.

When you turn on the Game Mode feature, you will be able to use the Game bar to turn on Game Mode for each UWP and Win32 title you play.

When you turn on the Game Mode feature, you can also turn on or off Game Mode notifications. While you have Game Mode turned off, you will also no longer get Game Mode notifications.

If you have Game Mode notifications turned on and open a game that has Game Mode turned on for it, you will get a notification to help remind you that Game Mode is turned on for that game title.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off Game Mode notifications for your account in Windows 10.
