    Turn off Focus Assist


    I'm confused but that is normal.....lol I am easily confused. I just go the update notice for the May 2019 update in August?? Does the tutorial that Brink made create a bootable USB drive with the latest version of windows 10 1903??

    To make things more confusing when I did the update it changed a bunch of my settings. I'm slowly getting them back to what they were but one change ( new feature or something I never had active before) is driving me nuts. how do get my notifications back to normal.

    Now I get this every few minutes

    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 Assistant on 1903


    Greetings.

    Can anyone help me figure out how the Focus assistant in Windows 10 build 1903 works exactly? Because right now I have it to"off" in the Setting menu, but everytime I do stuff it turns itself "on" by its own and keeps reminding me that "notifications will remain silent in the action center while you're in fullscreen mode". Here's how it behaves to me at the moment:

    • Desktop only - Alarm Mode On (sleep symbol)
    • Opening Edge - Focus Assistant Off
    • Opening Settings - Focus Assistant Off
    • Opening Mail - Focus Asistant Off

    Everytime I close and open edge, system menu, mail, calender etc the notification center pops up this message. The way it worked before (on 1809) was that when I played games in fullscreen mode the sleep symbol on the action center became active, but everywhere else it was turned off. Now it seems to think that my desktop is in fullscreen mode? I don't understand how this works exactly. I can open and minimize Edge constantly and the sleep symbol in the bottom right corner will appear and disappear everytime.
