Not system memory but rather my memory... ;)

I have Windows 10 set to not show notification notices if I am watching a movie or playing a game full screen. When I leave the full screen app Windows notifications will alert me as to what I missed.

Why do I have things set this way? Simple answer is that it is a pain when a notification alert throws a game or video out of full screen or just disrupts the display.

So what is the problem? I can't for the life of me remember what I did to achieve this setup. Anyone have a clue as to what I did?

Thanks David, that looks it is it. :)

Actually, what I'd like to know, is how Windows knows it is a game that is running...

Most likely due to the item running being full screen.

Probably true David. Since I'm almost positive that it does the same if I'm watching a full screen video it is probably the case.

Jay, I am so glad to find out that I am not the only one that does something cool/useful in Win 10 and then forgot how I got there.
