  1. Notifications Panel & controlled folder access


    I understand the value in getting NOTIFICATIONS in Windows 10 on the right side panel, including the Controlled Folder Access notifications from Windows Defender. However, there seems to be quite a number of CFA notifications (a good thing) but I wish that there was a way to mute the "dinging" sound, and "pop-up banners". I find it very intrusive when I am busy working on the computer. I can see the number of notifications in the Task Bar... that would be enough, because I do actually check there frequently.


    Is there a way to MUTE the audible dinging, and pop-up flagging while still having the system turned on?

    :)
