Windows 10 introduced a number of changes to the operating system including the addition of the “notification area”. This area appears on the taskbar and allows you to see messages such as emails, calendar reminders, and social media alerts without having to open up the respective apps.

Step 1: Click on the Start button and select Settings.
Step 2: Scroll down and uncheck Show notifications and actions in the Notification Area.
Step 3: Restart your PC and check out the change. You should now no longer be able to access the notification area.
