There was no concept of notifications in the previous versions of Windows OS. Notification panel is added to Windows 10 and gives you a perfect platform to see the notification from various apps running in your system.

It is good to have notifications popping up to your screen, but if notifications start to appear repeatedly they cause irritation to the user. Irritation leads to the distraction from the work.

There is no need to worry if you are experiencing such a problem. Unwanted or all notifications can easily be stopped in Windows 10. Follow the following steps to stop the notifications.
