Disabling Windows Notifications

If your new windows 10 machine is running slow, you may need to turn off notifications to increase performance. To do so, do the following: 

1. Open your start menu, and choose the "settings" option with the gear icon. 

2. This will bring up a new window for settings. Choose the "system" option. 


3. From the system menu, choose the "notifications and actions" option on the left pane. 


4. Turn off all notifications as shown in the screen shot.


This should improve performance on your new machine. 

Note: If above fix does not help, please perform an antivirus scan using Avast and a malware scan using Malwarebytes. If problems still persist, bring your personally owned computer to the Service Center located in ITC Building. Hours are 9-4 M-F. If this is a university owned computer, please contact the Help Desk at 307-766-4357 Option 1.
