How to configure the Concentration Wizard in Windows 10

The objective of it ends these annoying popup notifications, especially if you are working or if you want to enjoy a moment of leisure. Therefore, the Concentration Assistant allows us to establish a series of rules with which to decide when we will receive a notification and when we will not so that we can have times when we are not going to have any.

This Concentration Assistant can even make us not receive any notification during a certain period of time or even permanently, and configure only those notifications that we want to receive in Windows 10 because they are important. Therefore, it is a tool that can give us many uses.

Configure Concentration Wizard

As usual in this type of situation, we have to go first to the Windows 10 configuration. Inside the configuration, we have to enter the System section, which is usually the first to be displayed on the screen. In the column that appears on the left of the screen, a series of options are shown. One of the options that appear in the column, or at least should, is the Concentration Assistant.

We click on this option, and then the menu of this Concentration Wizard will appear in the center of the screen. Here we go to to be able to choose between three options in total, with which we can configure it to our liking in Windows 10. The options that appear on the screen are:

  • disabled: The Concentration Assistant is disabled by default in the system. Therefore, we will receive all the notifications of all the applications that are in Windows 10. Both the pop-up notifications and those that come out within the Activity Center.
  • Priority only: In this case, we will only see the notifications of applications that we have decided are priority. The rest will not be shown in a popup, but will appear in the Activity Center. In this case, we have to select which applications have priority to show these notifications.
  • Alarms only: All notifications displayed in Windows 10 are turned off popup. In the case of wanting to be able to see them, we will have to resort to the Activity Center of the system. It is the most extreme mode, which leaves us free of any notification as if it were a Do Not Disturb mode.

If you choose the second option, it is necessary to have to determine which applications will have priority in Windows 10, so they keep showing notifications. This is something that each user will be able to determine individually. Since within this option, you see that there is a button that says Customize the priority list.

So you can choose if there are applications that they will show these notifications on your computer. You can choose the ones you want, the ones you see are important, like Gmail or some email app. You can also select contacts that have priority. This will depend on each user. Once configured, when you use this specific mode of the Windows 10 Concentration Wizard, you will only receive these notifications. The rest will only be displayed in the activity center in the operating system. What do you think of this function?
