How To Clear “Show notifications from these apps” Area In Windows 10?

Notifications is one of the area where Windows has got the improvement through Windows 10. Windows 10 introduced notifications even for desktop programs by ditching those yellowish balloon tips. Windows 10 by default allows all desktop programs to show notifications. But you can control this functionality.  Sometimes after using a lot of programs, the “Show notifications from these apps” page may look cluttered. If you don’t know about this option, follow the steps:
Open Settings app. Go to System->Notifications & actions. Scroll down and you will see a heading like “Show notifications from these apps”. Under this all those desktop programs plus Universal apps are listed.

After using a lot of desktop programs, this page may look cluttered. You may wish to clear all the apps present there. There appears no simple way around in Settings. But it’s possible with Registry Editor. Please note that we have to reset or delete all the entries. We can’t delete individual entry.
1. Open Registry Editor.
2. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USERSOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPushNotifications
3. Delete the DWORD value present there with name “AppDB”.
4. That’s it! Now restart your computer to see changes.
