How do I turn off notifications in Calendar for Windows 10?

When you create a new event, you can set a reminder notification for the event. If you don't want notifications to appear, you can turn off a notification for a single event or for the entire app.

Turn off notifications for a single Calendar event you created

If you set a reminder for an event you created, you can edit the event to remove the reminder.

Note: You can't turn off reminders for meetings you've accepted from others.

  1. Open the event.

  2. In the Reminder list, choose None.

  3. Choose either Save and close or Send update to apply your change.

If you want to turn off notifications for your calendar events, you can do this for each account separately or for all accounts.

Manage notifications for a single account

  1. Choose Settings > Notifications.

  3. Use the slider under Show notifications in the action center to turn notifications on or off.

  4. To change the behavior of your notifications, you can check one or all of the following options:

    • Show a notification banner. With this turned on, your notifications will show in the bottom right of your screen.

    • Play a sound. You can change this sound in Windows 10 by choosing Start > Settings > Personalization > Themes > Advanced sound settings.

    • Show notifications for folders pinned to Start. With this checked, you'll see alerts for new items in folders you've pinned to the Start menu.
