Turn Off Notification Center on a Mac
Edited by Djinu, VisiHow, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this video, we're going to show how to disable notifications in the Mac OS.
Let's launch Skype. 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.
Then, click "None". 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.
Reopen Skype. You will see that it opens up without notifications.
That was how to disable application notifications on the Mac. If you have any questions or comments, please leave them in the space below. Thank you for watching VisiHow!
