Most modern browsers support desktop notifications on Windows 10. While push notifications are there to help users to get important alerts and updates, it is misused by internet marketers. You maybe in the middle of an important presentation and you start getting those annoying pop-ups and notifications. If your laptop is connected to a projector, and you are talking to a large audience the experience is even worse. In this post, I am going to talk about How to Block Chrome Notifications on Windows 10 which might be useful particularly to the business users.
Here are the steps to manage notifications:
- Click to Open the Chrome browser.
- Click on the upper right corner of the chrome browser window.
- Click to open the Chrome menu .
- Click on Settings > Show advanced settings (Bottom Link).
- In on the “Privacy” section, click Content settings.
- In the dialog that appears, go to “Notifications” and choose one of the following:
- Allow all sites to show notifications: You’ll automatically see notifications from all websites.
- Ask when a site wants to show notifications: You’ll get an alert from Chrome whenever a site wants to show you notifications. This is currently the default setting.
- Do not allow any site to show notifications: You won’t see any notifications from websites.
If you want to be selective about what notifications to allow, click on “Manage Exceptions”
In this example, lets say for example, you want to block Facebook notifications, select Block on Facebook notifications.
This setting should also traverse through all your devices including Android and IOS which is connected with the same Google Account.
