How to enable/disable notifications from other apps and senders in Windows 10

The Action Center in Windows 10 collects and displays notifications and alerts from traditional Windows apps and system notifications, along with those generated from modern apps. The notifications are then grouped in the Action Center by app and time. When Action Center receives a new notification, it briefly displays a notification banner above the taskbar’s notification area to let the user know.

Starting with Windows 10 build 14328, you’ll see badges appear on UWP apps in the taskbar, in addition to Live Tiles and in the Action Center. These badges are brief, contextual and app-specific notifications.

For example, the Mail app badge shows you the number of unseen (not unread) emails. The Alarms & Clock app badge will let you know that you have an active alarm. The Weather app badge lets you know when there are weather alerts in the area.

This guide will show you how to completely enable or disable receiving notifications from apps and other senders in Windows 10.

Note: This will not affect Windows system notifications.
