When you install a new Mac app, you find it “chattier” than you’d prefer. Maybe it’s popping up notifications on your screen or polluting your Mac’s notification center with lots of messages. Maybe the red badge on the app icon in your Dock is making your OCD twitch. Or maybe it’s making noise, as I discovered TextExpander 6 did when I installed it last week.
Well, this problem is easy to fix. All you have to do is open up the Notifications system preference and adjust the app’s behavior. Here’s how
How to shut up Mac app notifications
- Click the menu.
- Click System Preferences.
- Click Notifications.
- Scroll through the list of apps until you find the chatty one you’d like to shut up.
- Adjust the settings accordingly, then close the notification window.
And that’s it! You’re done!
