I'm sure that all using Windows 10 know about the Notifications that come up as to system events such as the result of a scheduled Defender scan.

I use Notification Focus to prevent popup notifications from showing when I have something in full screen such as a game or movie and it works fine. The one thing that bugs me is that every time I leave full screen there will be a notification that Focus is active with the options to change and/or turn off.

Does anyone know of a way to turn off the Focus notification when full screen is exited?

Thanks for any insight. :)

Sorry I can't help you Jay, it's not something I use as I don't watch anything full screen, well I don't watch movies etc.

That's OK. I THINK I have it solved but won't know for a while for sure. If you go to Settings -> System -> Focus Alert you turn off everything and check the box at the bottom telling it to let you know what you missed. The rest of the setting are actually to automatically turn on Focus Assist under specific situations Which it does even though Focus Assist is already on. It is this automatically turning on that causes the annoying alert that Focus Alert has been turned on.

While Focus Alert will not throw up a message for most things I DO have it set to still put through system alarms. In case some don't know the purpose of Focus Alert it will stop popup alerts when a screen is duplicated, an app is in full screen mode or playing a game.

Fingers crossed! :mrgreen:
