During video calls—especially if you’re sharing screens—no one wants to see your notifications or hear those dings and rings. So mute! In Windows 10, go to System > Notifications & Actions and turn them off. On MacOS 10.8 Mountain Lion or later, click the three lines in the top right corner, then swipe down then turn on Do Not Disturb. Just don’t forget to turn your notifications back on once the call is over.
