How to disable notifications in Windows 11

Windows 11 users can disable notifications entirely or disable the feature per application. 

The “Notifications” feature permits apps, websites, and Windows to show pop-ups on the desktops to alert you about new messages, articles, alarms, and system actions you may need to take. However, notifications can be a major distraction, especially when trying to focus on a project or trying to study. In that situation, turning off notifications can help users stay focused.

Furthermore, notifications can use up battery power, especially if you have a lot of apps that are constantly sending notifications. If you’re on a laptop or tablet with limited battery life, disabling notifications can help you extend your battery life. Also, disabling notifications can also improve the computer’s performance 

In this guide, we will show you how to enable and disable notifications on Windows 11.
