However, it could happen, a little out of habit, that this notification center is even ignored so much that it is completely useless; or, why not, that its icon is annoying because it takes up space on the screen.

Well in this guide we will touch on both points: in fact we will explain both how hide the notification center icon in Windows 10 leaving its functionality unchanged, either how to disable notification center in windows 10 and possibly also get rid of system notifications.

This is a suitable solution for whom it doesn't use much functionality and has a Windows 10 device that can be used with a mouse and keyboard. In fact we will go to delete the icon from the system tray by gaining some space without, however, completely disabling the notification center.

Scroll down until you find the link "Enable or disable system icons" and click or tap on it.

Look for the entry in the list Notification Center and move the corresponding switch to "Disabled": the notification center icon will disappear immediately.

Simply return the switch to "On" to display the icon again.
