Windows 10 Wx warning
« on: February 10, 2021, 03:38:56 PM »
I hate to call Windows weather software but I think that it is, at least in one case.

I updated my Weather Computer from 7 to 10.  Since the last Windows 10 update, I will get, every now and then, an annoying three note annunciation and a fly in from the right lower corrner comes in with a Weather Warning, and some simple thing like "0.0 inches of rain has fallen in the last hour," of course is true because it is 5 below 0 F, and also, of no real value in warning me of any threat.

I don't see any weather site logo, I can't get info by clicking on it (or I"m not fast enough) to find out where this valuable announcement is coming from so I can turn it off.

Has anyone seen this with win10?  I'm running two instances of Weather Display and GraphWriter on that machine and that is it.

I'm hoping someone knows where this might be coming from and how to turn it off.

From the start, in the search types in Notifications and this should display Notifications and Actions.
You can then select which Apps have notifications turned on...
There is also "Weather App" but that does not should like the issue

Thanks for the replies.  I went to the Control Panel in WD and the Warning Alerts & E-mail in both instances of WD, and the main switch is turned off, RED, for both.  Maybe there is no email being sent, but just a 'local' notification.  I will keep an eye on it!

Not having set that, and having the main switch turned off, I assumed nothing was coming from WD.

Not complaining, just makes a sound and while I got processor power to spare, I'm from the age when every instruction and every byte was valuable, so I just turn off the un needed or wanted stuff. 

I still shut off lights in the room when I'm not in it, hard habits to break.  :grin:

I also get those weather pop-ins regularly on a laptop and desktop Windows 10, starting after a Windows update a few weeks ago.  I don't have Weather Display.


I ignore them as they disappear after a screen click.


Enjoy,
