How to Disable Microsoft Account Notifications in Windows 10

Here Is The Easy Money-Making Trick Everyone Is Talking About! Learn More Here!

Windows 10 users may have noticed that Microsoft is pushing them to switch from using a local account to a Microsoft account.

While some users may find the benefits of a Microsoft account appealing, others may prefer the privacy and control of a local account.

If you fall into the latter category and want to disable the Microsoft account notifications, here’s how you can do it:

1. Open the Settings app on your Windows 10 device.

2. Click on the “Privacy” option.

3. Navigate to the “General” section.

4. Look for the option that says “Show me notifications in the Settings app. When off, required notifications are still shown.”

5. Toggle this option to the “Off” position. By turning off this option, you will no longer receive notifications prompting you to switch to a Microsoft account. However, it’s important to note that if you haven’t disabled this setting, the notification banner may eventually return.

Additionally, you may have noticed a small “x” icon next to the “Sign in now” button on the Microsoft accounts banner.

Clicking on this icon will remove the notification as well. However, it’s recommended to disable the aforementioned settings option to prevent the banner from reappearing.

Remember, the choice to use a Microsoft account or a local account is entirely up to you. Windows 10 still provides the flexibility to use a local account, allowing you to maintain control over your data and privacy.
