Windows: Suppress Unwanted Notifications with Focus


Scenario: You’re giving a PowerPoint presentation to a group and an email notification – which displays the Subject of the email – pops up in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen for all to see. (Note: I once had a smug colleague (knowing that I was giving a presentation) teach me a lesson by sending me an email with the subject “Your probation officer called”.


Or maybe you’re trying to get some serious work done and the constant barrage of notifications is interruptive.


You can solve this issue with the Windows 10 Focus Assist feature. It enables you to control how and when Windows notifies you of newly received email, messages, phone calls and alarms.
