  1. Focus assist staying on after set times


    Hi,


    I've been using Focus Assist for a few weeks and I find it to be a very helpful function, but for some reason I haven't been able to figure out, even though I have it set to work only from 6am to 6pm, it stays on after that and never shows me any notifications. If I look at the notifications icon at the bottom right corner of the screen or if I hover over it with the mouse, it says "focus assist on", for example at 9pm, when it should be off. Anything I cn do to sort this out?


    Cheers

    :)

    Hello Mike, *Smile

    Focus Assist used to be called "Quiet Hours".

    It's a feature that basically allows you to pause or stop showing notifications when they would be inconvenient.

    Here's some tutorials below to give you more details:

    Focus Assist is nicely explained in this Windows Blog item from Elana Pidgeon "Windows 10 Tip: How to enable Focus Assist in the Windows 10 April 2018 Update" (May 2018):

    "Focus Assist helps you get more done by easily blocking notifications, sounds, and alerts to create distraction-free work times. This is helpful if you’re giving a presentation or trying to focus on a paper, you can use Focus Assist to block interruptions or distractions."
    Check out the preceding link for more information on the tool, along with instructions for enabling/disabling this setting.

    HTH,
