Chrome notification is a vital feature on Windows 10 to keep track of the latest happening of your favourite websites. You can enable Chrome notifications for every website supporting it. For instance, the social media sites Facebook.com, instagram.com, or twitter.com and many blog sites.
However, these notifications can be really annoying if they are large in number and keep popping up on your screen while working on some project or watching a video. It can also minimize the currently running program or game. The notifications from some sites while at work can also be embarrassing like that from tinder.com.
The most annoying notifications are from Facebook. It would continuously send you information about every new happening. If you are a part of a group on messenger that is quite active, Facebook would constantly bombard you with those message notifications.
Another thing to note about Chrome notifications is that it would keep popping up notification even if you are no longer active on it. This is because, by default Google Chrome is allowed to run in the background on Windows 10.
In this guide, we would discuss how to turn off the annoying Chrome Notifications in Windows 10.

Open Chrome browser and click on the three dots at the top-right corner and select Settings.
Under Privacy and security, click on Site Settings.

If you find any culprit site in the allow list, then block it.
What if Notifications still appear?
The above steps would stop Chrome notifications in most cases. However, if you still find the notifications, your browser has likely been infected with one of the browser malware programs like Hijacker or Adware. In order to prevent notifications, it is necessary to remove that malware.

So, these are the methods through which you can get rid of the annoying notification banners on Windows 10. Keep in mind that you always have an option to allow important notification and block only those notifications that are unnecessary or irritating on Chrome.
