Whenever I run any processing algorithm in QGIS, after it finishes I get Windows 10 pop-ups (notofications in lower-right corner) which says that the processing is finished. It is very annoying, particularly when I run very quick and simple algorithms, because it makes QGIS window out of focus and to get back to work I have to close the pop-up first.

How can I disable Windows 10 notifications for QGIS?

    Upgrade to QGIS 3.4 -- they only show for long running tasks on 3.4 – ndawson Dec 2 '18 at 20:10
  • Which QGIS version are you using? The behavior has changed in 3.4. – etrimaille Dec 3 '18 at 12:12
  • This is QGIS 3.2. I use this version because 3.4 causes some problems with Python while using GRASS algorithms – Karol Daniluk Dec 3 '18 at 20:33
  • Aaaaah! then my answer did not capture the real cause of this issue, sorry. Will you guys post it as answer? – Kazuhito Dec 10 '18 at 12:13
  1. Open the Windows Settings menu by pressing the Windows Key and “I”
  2. Click on "System" (Display, notifications, apps, power)
  3. Click “Notifications & Actions” menu
  4. Wait a few seconds until Windows finds and lists all apps which uses "Notifications"
  5. Scroll down list of apps and find QGIS
  6. Turn it off
  7. Enjoy!
  • The problem is there is no QGIS on this list. The pop-up looks like this: imgur.com/CUAZYSh – Karol Daniluk Dec 2 '18 at 14:28
  • @KaRolthas Could you translate it for me to understand what it is? – Kazuhito Dec 3 '18 at 9:20
  • "Zadanie ukończone" is "Task is finished" and "Punkty wzdłuż geometrii" is the name of algorithm "Points along geometry" – Karol Daniluk Dec 3 '18 at 20:36
  • Thanks @KaRolthas Unfortunately I cannot reproduce it by my quick tests. – Kazuhito Dec 4 '18 at 0:14
