By default, Windows 10 displays notification pop-ups when the store automatically installs app updates. You’ll see a notification that says, “Just updated, try it.” If you’d rather not see them, you can turn them off here.
For example, this notification was displayed when Windows 10 was automatically updating the Gaming Services background service. There is no way to check out a background service – unless you want to launch a game through Xbox Game Pass for PC – so we decided to just turn it off.
The notification options of the store can be found in the “Settings” app. To start, open the “Start” menu and click the “Settings” icon on the left side of the screen or press Windows + i.
In the Settings window, go to System> Notifications and Actions.
Scroll down to the “Get notifications from these senders” section.
Find Microsoft Store in the list. If the store sent you a recent notification, it will be sorted by “Latest” in the list at the top. Click the on switch to toggle it off. The store no longer shows you update notifications.
That’s it. We also recommend leaving the store’s automatic updates activated for security reasons, as Microsoft now sometimes issues security updates through the store.
However, the store does not need to notify you when it installs these updates.
(If you disable automatic updates, you will not receive notifications when updates are available. The store did not send notifications until after an update was installed – not when a notification was available. So these notifications will no longer help you install updates manually.)
