The Xbox has a cool feature called “Play Anywhere.” It lets you play specific games on your Xbox console (like Xbox One or Xbox Series X|S) or your Windows 10 PC. You can easily switch between these devices and pick up where you left off in your game.
But this cool feature can sometimes lead to a flood of achievement notifications on your PC screen. While these notifications can be neat for tracking your gaming achievements, they can distract and disrupt your gaming groove.
No worries if you find these constant Xbox achievement pop-ups on your Windows 10 PC annoying! Turning them off is a breeze. I’ve put together a simple step-by-step guide below to help you do just that:

1. Use the “Windows + G” shortcut to open the Xbox Game Bar and click the “Gear” icon in the top menu.
2. In the newly opened window, access the “Notifications” tab in the left menu.
3. Once that’s done, uncheck the option “Notify me when I unlock achievements” and click the “X” to close the window.
4. To exit the Xbox Game Bar, click anywhere on the screen outside the tabs and use your PC.
Ready! You can now disable notifications for Xbox achievements in Windows 10.
