NVIDIA’s GeForce Expertise software program now shows notification commercials for free-to-play video games. In case you don’t need notification popups for video games you’ve by no means performed showing if you’re simply making an attempt to use your pc, right here’s how to disable them.
This is without doubt one of the many more and more annoying options in GeForce Expertise, together with the Alt+Z notification and in-game overlay icons you too can disable.
How to Disable the Notification Adverts
First, launch the GeForce Expertise instrument. You are able to do this by clicking the advert itself or by opening the Begin menu, trying to find “GeForce”, and launching the “GeForce Expertise” shortcut.
Click on the gear-shaped “Settings” button close to the highest proper nook of the GeForce Expertise window.
Click on the “Common” tab on the left aspect of the window if it isn’t already chosen.
Scroll down on the Common pane and uncheck the “Reward is obtainable” notification. You’ll nonetheless obtain notifications when driver updates can be found.
How to Entry the Rewards, If You Care About These
Even when you disable reward notifications, these “rewards” are nonetheless out there within the GeForce Expertise app itself. When a reward is obtainable, you’ll see a inexperienced badge over the bell-shaped Notifications icon within the GeForce Expertise window. Click on the “Notifications” icon to view your out there rewards and different notifications.
