Disable notifications when signed in to Windows Live Messenger

While designed to be helpful, the notifications you receive while signed into Windows Live Messenger can quickly get distracting, if not downright annoying. But Messenger lets you not only disable notifications altogether, but choose which ones you want to turn off. This tutorial explains how.


Stop the new email notification and other popups by Messenger

Open the main Windows Live Messenger window, and:

Once done, click on "OK" to save your new settings and close the Options dialog. These changes take effect immediately, but only affect that copy of Messenger: if you use Messenger from another PC (like your work computer), you will have to make the same changes in that Messenger's options as well.
