My Browser is not showing notifications: A quick guide for Chrome users on Windows

Having trouble receiving notifications while using Chrome? Fret not! We've got a simple step-by-step guide to help you fix the issue.

Occasionally, users may face issues with Chrome notifications. However, most of the time, it's just a matter of adjusting a few settings. Let's dive in!

Check your web-app notification settings

First, ensure that you've enabled notifications within the website. Usually, you can find this by navigating to 'Settings,' and make sure the 'Notifications' toggle is switched on.

Verify Chrome's notification settings

Next, you'll need to check if Chrome is allowing notifications from your website. Here's how:

  • Open Chrome and click on the three-dot menu icon in the top-right corner.

  • Select 'Settings' from the drop-down menu.

  • Scroll down and click 'Privacy and Security,' followed by 'Site Settings.'

  • Under the 'Permissions' section, click on 'Notifications.'

  • In the 'Allow' section, look for you website. If it's not there, add it by clicking the 'Add' button next to 'Allow' and entering your website URL.

Adjust Windows notification settings

Lastly, make sure Windows is set up to display Chrome notifications.

  • Click the Windows 'Start' button and open 'Settings' (gear icon).

  • Select 'System,' followed by 'Notifications & Actions.'

  • Ensure the toggle for 'Get notifications from apps and other senders' is on.

  • Scroll down to 'Get notifications from these senders' and confirm that 'Google Chrome' is enabled.

After completing these steps, your website notifications should now appear on your Windows desktop while using Chrome. If the issue persists, try restarting your browser or computer, then verify the settings once more.
