How To Stop Notifications Interrupting Your Music in Windows.


Notification Interrupting your music in windows.

When you’re enjoying your favorite music on your headphones, the last thing you want is Windows audio notifications ruining the experience, such as when a new email arrives.

There are two ways to avoid this. One involves lowering the volume of Windows notifications; the other is to divert the audio to your computer’s speakers, not your headphones.

To do either, first, start playing your music on your computer, then click Start, type sound settings, and select the Sound Settings options in the results. You can do the same by Settings > System > Sound.

Inside Sound settings, scroll down to ‘Advanced sound options’, click on ‘App volume device preferences’.

Next, locate the Sound app in the list (this controls Windows notifications) and choose whether to output them to your headphones or your computer’s speakers.
