You're watching VisiHow. In this video, we're going to show how to disable notifications in the Mac OS.
Sometimes, a notification bar will appear when you receive a message or launch a program. For this tutorial, we can see a notification bar appears on the right-hand side of the screen.
To turn the notification feature off, click the icon with three lines in the upper-right corner of the screen
A pop-up menu will appear on the right side of the screen.
Click the "Notifications" tab at the top
Then, click the "Do Not Disturb" button
In this video, it is in the "OFF" position. Setting "Do Not Disturb" to "ON" will turn notifications off for the rest of the day.
Another way of accessing the menu with notifications is to click the gear icon on the Apple dock
You will go to "System Preferences".
Then, click "Notifications"
The box on the left-hand side of the new window shows all of the different programs for which you receive notifications.
For example, click "Skype" to receive no notifications for the application
You can click any other app.
It is in the gray panel on the right side of the "Notifications" window. You will receive no alerts from the application.
Close the menu by clicking the red button in the top-left corner
Click the hot-dog menu in the upper-right corner again
Click the "Do Not Disturb" toggle
This will set it back to the "OFF" position.
You will see that it opens up without notifications.
