How to disable Notification Sounds in Windows 10 or remove the transfer notifications?


You might find it annoying that PhotoSync shows a notification for every transferred file and that these notifications now slide out along the bottom and each is accompanied by a chime, which can be irksome if you transfer lots of files. There are two ways to get rid of these annoying sounds:

  1. Disable the notification sound in the Windows settings to mute all Windows notifications.

  2. Disable the transfer notifications for PhotoSync

To mute the Windows notifications, open the Windows 10 settings app by pressing the Windows Key + i or open the settings app from the start menu
