    disabling all notifications from windows


    I have online exams for a week. The department uses a system called Wheebox Wheebox .
    Our exam department have sent us email to turn of all notifications from computers.

    Any pop up notification on system during exam will be taken as a noise. Meaning improper attempt to cheat in exam. Also they have mentioned in email system is very sensitive to sound and they may take the sound of any kind as violation of fair practice.
    So I want to disable any kind of notification and noise. How can I do so .

    I am using Windows 10.

    :)
