Enabling do not disturb in windows 11

How to

In Windows 11, you can stop notifications and distractions by enabling “Do Not Disturb” mode. Here is how to do it.

As with other operating systems, notifications come standard in Windows 11. Since the advent of iOS and Android, Microsoft has also been trying to streamline how and when notifications appear.

In general, notifications are valuable and useful. For example, you know immediately when you receive a new email, WhatsApp message, or Facebook message.

While useful, these notifications can be a distraction. This is also true when you want to get work done and do not want to be interrupted. To deal with these situations, Windows 11 allows you to enable “Goodnight Mode” which is a feature that allows you to sleep through the day without being interrupted.

To enable “Good Night Mode” in the Windows 11 OS, follow these steps.


Enable Do Not Disturb mode in Windows 11 operating system

You can enable Do Not Disturb mode directly from the Windows 11 Settings app.

  1. Open “Settings” with ” Win + I “.
  2. Click ” System “.
  3. Go to ” Observations “.
  4. Turn on the option ” Do Not Disturb “.
  5. Exit the configuration application.
  6. This activates the “Do Not Disturb ” mode.

Detailed instructions:

As usual, launch the Windows 11 “Settings” application with the key combination “Start Key + I”. Once launched, click on “System” in the sidebar to display the “Notifications” page. As the name implies, this page lets you control and manage how and when notifications appear in Windows 11.

After viewing this page, enable the Goodnight option. As soon as you do this, Do Not Disturb mode will be enabled in Windows 11. Exit the Settings application.

From now on, notifications will no longer bother you. However, you can still use it in notifications. Click on “Notification Center” or press the keyboard shortcut “Start Key + N”.

Scheduling Goodnight Mode in Windows 11

While Goodnight Mode is useful, it is not very beneficial to be able to turn it on at any time. In such cases, Windows 11 allows you to schedule a “good night mode”. By doing so, Do Not Disturb mode is automatically enabled at certain times of the day, such as during business hours. Simply put, you get the best of both worlds.

  1. Open “Settings” with ” Start + I “.
  2. Click on ” System ” in the sidebar.
  3. Go to ” Notifications ” page.
  4. Expand the ” Turn on do not disturb automatically ” tab.
  5. Check ” During these times “.
  6. Set time ” Turn on “.
  7. Set time ” Turn off “.
  8. Select ” Daily ” from the drop-down menu ” Repeat “.
  9. Close the “Settings” application .
  10. Now schedule “Do not disturb” .

Detailed instructions:

Request and open “Settings” from the “Start” menu.

Open the system “Notifications” page and expand the “Turn on automatic not operate” tab. Next, check the “At this time of day” checkbox.

Next, set “On”, “Off”, and “Repeat”. I decided to schedule “Do Not Disturb” to repeat daily. So I selected “Everyday”.

Now “Do Not Disturb” is scheduled.

Cancel Do Not Disturb mode

If you no longer need Do Not Disturb mode, you can cancel it immediately.

  1. Open “Settings” with ” Win + I “.
  2. Click ” System “.
  3. Go to ” Observations “.
  4. Uncheck the option ” Do not disturb “.
  5. Expand the tab ” Turn on automatic tamper protection “.
  6. Uncheck ” During these hours “.
  7. Close the “Settings” application .
  8. In this case “Do Not Disturb” mode is disabled .

Detailed instructions:

Press the key combination “Start key + I” to launch the “Settings” application. Click on “System” in the sidebar and click on the “Notifications” tab.

Disable the “Goodnight” option. Next, expand the “Turn on do not disturb automatically” tab and clear the “When these times” checkbox.

This will disable “Do Not Disturb”.
