Aviseringar och meddelandefältet

Vad är en avisering?

If an application or a system component wants to get your attention, a notification will be shown at the bottom of your screen.

For example, if you plug in an external device (like a USB stick), or if new updates are available for your computer, you will get a notification informing you.

To minimize distraction, some notifications first appear as a single line. You can move your mouse over them to see their full content.

Andra aviseringar har valbara knappar. För att stänga en avisering av denna typ utan att välja en av dess alternativ, klicka på stängknappen.

Clicking the close button on some notifications dismisses them. Others may stay hidden in the message tray.


The message tray gives you a way to get back to your notifications when it is convenient for you. It appears when you move your mouse to the bottom-right corner of the screen, or press Super+M. The message tray contains all the notifications that you have not acted upon or that permanently reside in it.

Du kan titta på aviseringarna genom att klicka på meddelandefältets objekt. Dessa är vanligtvis meddelanden som sänts av program. Chattaviseringar ges dock specialbehandling och representeras som de individuella kontakterna som skickade chattmeddelande till dig.

Du kan stänga meddelandefältet genom att trycka Super+M igen eller Esc.

If the screen keyboard is open, you will need to click the tray button to show the message tray.

Dölja aviseringar

Om du arbetar med något och inte vill bli störd kan du stänga av aviseringar.

  1. Type "Settings" into the global search bar on your desktop. Click on the resulting Settings icon, or press Enter, to open.

  2. Click on Notifications.

  3. Switch Show Pop Up Banners to Off.

When switched off, most notifications will not pop up at the bottom of the screen. Very important notifications, such as when your battery is critically low, will still pop up. Notifications will still be available in the messaging tray when you display it (by moving your mouse to the bottom of the screen, or by pressing Super+M), and they will start popping up again when you switch the toggle to ON again.
