Set Priority Notifications for Do Not Disturb in Windows 11

Notifications are alerts from apps, system, and other senders.

Starting with Windows 11 build 22557, Microsoft reimagined focus assist experiences on Windows. Do not disturb makes it easy to silence notifications. Focus is a new experience that enables everyone to stay in the moment and minimize distractions on their PC. To help you stay on track, focus integrates with the Clock app for other focus tools, such as a focus timer and calming music.

It’s now easier than ever to silence notification banners with do not disturb. When you are ready to see the notifications that you may have missed, you can find them in Notification Center (Win+N).

You are always in control of your notifications. You can set up rules to automatically turn on do not disturb. For example, you could set do not disturb to automatically turn on outside of your work hours. Additionally, you can set priority notifications to control whether calls, reminders, and specific apps break through when do not disturb is on.

Set priority notifications allows you to choose which notifications are allowed while do not disturb is on, all others will remain in the Notification Center (Win+N). Alarms and important app notifications are not affected by Set priority notifications settings.

This tutorial will show you how to set priority notifications while do not disturb is on for your account in Windows 11.
