By minimising distractions, you can focus on your most important tasks and wrap up projects way before deadlines are due.

With Focus Assist on Windows, manage and define which notifications you want to see and hear while keeping your eyes on the things you should be doing. Here’s how to use Focus Assist:

  • To begin, select Start > head through to Settings > choose System > and click Focus Assist.

  • Alternately, you can search for Focus Assist in the search box.

  • If you want to see and hear fewer notifications, go ahead and select either Priority only or Alarms only.

  • If you selected Priority only, you can define which notifications are allowed.

  • Select Customize priority list, and then modify the options to get the notifications you want to see.

How to limit your late-night notifications

  • To begin, select Start > head through to Settings > choose System > and click Focus Assist.

  • Under Automatic rules, you will need to select During these times and then turn the switch to On.

  • Next, set the start and end times for the Focus Assist to limit your notifications and select the checkmark to save your choices.

  • Expand the Repeats list and select which days you want to use for the rule.

To select what types of notifications you'd still like to receive during the times you set, expand the Focus level list and select the option you want.
