Question / Problem:
How to Prevent Windows 10 from Flashing a Notification Every Time the Kofax VRS System Tray Icon is Loaded
Answer / Solution:
In Windows 7 and earlier, when the Kofax VRS System Tray is loaded, a small notification bubble would appear. In Windows 10, these notifications have been moved to the Notification Bar. When new notifications appear in the Notification Bar, Windows plays a sound and a pop up, which is considerably more fanfare than in previous versions of Windows.
To prevent Windows 10 from displaying a notification every time the Kofax VRS System Tray icon is loaded:
- Run VCDemo.exe
- Load a Scan Source "with SVRS" or "with VRS"
- After the Kofax VRS Elite notification appears, click the Notifications icon in the system tray to open the Notifications Bar.
- Right-click the Kofax VRS Elite notification and select
Turn off notifications for VIVApplication
- The Kofax VRS Elite notification is removed from the Notifications Bar. The next time a VRS Scan source is loaded, the System Tray icon will load, but no notification will appear.
