Turn off desktop email notifications
Thursday, January 20, 2011/
Outlook users will be aware of a setting that allows them to receive desktop notifications whenever they receive an email message. This is a useful way to keep on top of all those emails – but it can also be annoying, and in that case you’ll need to know how to turn them off.
First, you need to actually open Outlook. Then, go over to the file menu and then select “options”, just above the “exit” button.
Then, you’ll see a new window appear. You’ll want to click on “mail”, and then scroll down to the “message arrival” option. You’ll be given a few different options for what happens when new messages arrive – untick the “display a desktop alert” option.
And you’re done. Come back here if you want to turn them on again and just simply check the box.
