I have Chrome notifications enabled (Bell icon in the taskbar enter image description here). It works great - especially with Pushbullet.

I like the bell being white when there are pending notifications and grayed when all are read. What I hate is the popups. When a new notification arrives, a popup jumps onto the screen, blocking part of it and making me loose concentration. This is extremely intrusive!!!

How can I stop the popups but keep the bell?

* I have a feeling it's not related to a specific OS.

  • I know how it looks. An obvious question. Sorry. – AlikElzin-kilaka Jul 30 '15 at 15:09

Oh, the solution is easy.

It seems the Do no disturb is exactly the answer. Right click on the bell in the taskbar and choose Do no disturb.

When in Do no disturb mode, the bell is shown white whenever a new notification arrives, but doesn't pop up a window. Doesn't disturb - daaaa.
