When I'm working on my Mac, there are times when I don't want to be disturbed by notifications about emails or messages. I know I can schedule "do not disturb" time, but is there an easy way to turn on "do not disturb" mode at any time I like?
Its true OS 10 really feels
like we want to be notified of anything that happens including a text arriving
or an email arriving or things that you have set up.
You can specify for any
application whether you want notifications to appear but it takes some effort
to set that up. You can also set up Do Not Disturb mode by hours and say
between these hours don’t show me any notifications. But, sometimes you might
just want to say, right now, show me nothing on the screen so I can actually
get some work done. It’s really simple to do.
In the upper right hand corner in
OS 10 there is a little notifications icon, all you have to do is use the
Option key, that is the ALT key on a Windows keyboard, and Option click on that
little notification icon turns On or Off the Do Not Disturb mode. If it’s
currently on, it turns it off, if it’s currently off, it turns it on.
easy way to quickly and easily toggle the state of Do Not Disturb mode on your
Option+Click on Notification Center icon. Turns gray when Do Not Disturb enabled, black when it's not.
