Windows 7: Getting rid of excess notifications

Getting rid of excess notifications

Hey guys,

Not sure if this is posted elsewhere,

Does anyone know how to get rid of excess notifications?

specifically the stupid action center flag (unless it has something useful to say) i would love to get rid of,

i know you can "hide" them so they only show on notification, but it doesn't ACTUALLY hide them, it puts that annoying little arrow which shows them whenever you roll over (which i hit all the time trying to get to icons that are ACTUALLY use)

anyone know how to make it so they they completely dissapear untill they show a notification?

Thanks,

Johnny

When you go to the action center is there anything highlighted in either red or yellow?

From what I've seen it will show even if you have no notifications that need to be addressed. Hovering over it will tell you that there are no notifications needing to be addressed (I forget the exact message). To my knowledge there is no way to actually remove it.

I just did the same but it puts it into the arrow and i think the OP doesn't even want it there

Yea, i know that it is picky, but i hate having the little arrow there even more than the flag (its just like hiding inactive icons in xp / vista) which for some reason really got on my nerves.

I like my screen real estate, and i hate having pointless notifications,

pet hate maybe?

Will that stop it from checking for updates / antivirus etc OR just remove the icon from the notification bar?

i want the services to run, just in the background untill an error / warning pops up preferably

If you don`t like the action center remove it from your taskbar.

Right click on the notification arrow and click properties. Then find Action center and chose off option and u are done.

It wont bug you again..
