This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off show notification banners from apps for your account in Windows 11.

Notifications are alerts from apps, system, and other senders.

Windows 11 shows notifications on the lock screen (Win+L), Notification Center (Win+N), and notification banners at the lower-right corner of the screen above the taskbar on the main display.

If you like, you can turn on or off showing notification banners from specific apps above the taskbar corner.

Starting with Windows 11 version 22H2 KB5030310 Build 22621.2361, to minimize distractions from notification toasts, we now detect if the user is interacting with toasts or not and provide a suggestion to turn the toast banners off for such apps. This will only stop the banners from appearing, and you can still find the toasts in the notification center.
