    How to disable chrome notifications?


    Title says it all.How to get rid of them notifications and that annoying "bell" icon on my taskbar,that comes with them?
    Am usingVersion 35.0.1916.153 (up to date that is) and have already tried disabling via group policy and flags within Chrome,it keeps coming back.
    Any suggestions?

    You can apparently disable it by going to chrome://flags and disabling "Enable Rich Notifications".

    Have alredady disabled each and every notification flag in Chrome as stated and it doesnt seem to comply.Setting the 'bell' to not disturb,does not make the icon disapear,the point is it should not be displayed in the first place.

    I am seeing that for the newer version of Chrome if the notifications are set to default not disable, the icon disappears. I don't use Chrome so I do not know if it is fact.

    Notifications were 'flagged" either enabled or default,that is what made the bell icon to popup.Setting them to disabled,should have (?) eliminated the process of being notified by Google,but did not keep the icon from appearing on taskbar.
    Customizing notification area can not help,already set to hide specific icon.
