If you play Xbox games on a Windows 10 PC – like the one on Microsoft’s Game Pass for PC service – you may see pop-up notifications for your Xbox achievements. Here’s how to turn off the achievement notification.
It’s controlled from Windows 10’s built-in Game Bar, which is more of a full-screen game overlay at this point. To open it, press Windows + G.
(If you don’t see the Game Bar, go to Settings> Games> Xbox Game Bar. Here, you can activate the Game Bar and control the shortcuts that open it – Windows + G by default.)
Click the gear-shaped “Settings” icon on the right side of the bar at the top of your screen.
Select “Notifications” on the left side of the Game Bar Settings window. Uncheck “Notify me when I unlock achievements” to hide achievement notifications.
You can also uncheck Game Bar notification types here to hide them, including Xbox social messages, party invites, and new people following you.
You have done. To leave the Game Bar overlay interface, click outside the window or press Windows + G again.
Even after turning off achievement notifications, you can still view detailed achievement statistics in the Xbox app on your Windows 10 PC. You can open it from the Start menu by searching for “Xbox”.
Some games can also display in-game information about your unlocked achievements.
