How to Manage Notifications in Microsoft Edge

Nowadays, notifications seem to be everywhere – and your web browser is no exception. While visiting your favorite website, you might notice that it asks to show you notifications. If you accept these notifications, your browser will alert you when something new is added to the site.

While these notifications are nice for some websites, over time they can get a little annoying. Luckily, Microsoft Edge makes it easy to manage these notifications – here’s how.
