how can I disable or turn off new notifications within Windows 10?

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

          I have an issue with new notifications popping up randomly onto my desktop.  While this is not creating any serious concerns, it is still annoying because of its temporary distraction.  With this said, I am wondering how I can disable new notifications within Windows 10.  Any suggestions for correcting this concern will be greatly appreciated.

          Thank you

          George

Start, Settings, Notifications and Actions. That should work for you.

Hi George,

Further to John's suggestion, Start > Settings > Notifications and Actions won't actually get you there. In case this is confusing for you, follow these steps:

Press your Windows Key and type "Notifications & actions settings"
Press your Enter Key or click the "Best match" result
Under Notifications, scroll down and click "Off" any notifications you want to block

Notifications & Actions Settings
Hope that's helpful.

I think we are on different versions. My version looks different and goes right to the spot.

Hello and Good Afternoon John and Andrew,

             Thank you very much for taking the time to address my question.  Using John's suggestion, I was able to go straight to the needed area to turn off the undesired notifications.  Everything was pretty much straightforward, so, I did not have any issues.  However, I do thank you Andrew for going that extra mile in making sure I understood the instructions given by John.  As always, I am appreciative of such extra efforts.
