Hi, Tom. ALT plus F, followed by S is settings. In the Settings tree view, the categories are listed this way:

Settings categories Tree view 
Profiles 
Privacy, search, and services 
Appearance 
Start, home, and new tabs 
Share, copy and paste 
Cookies and site permissions 

So Cookies and Site permissions is the sixth category down, when you're in the Settings tree view. Press ENTER on Cookies and Site Permissions. TAB over to notifications, then arrow down to Block Notifications, then add the en.softonic.com website, so that it no longer has permission to send you notifications.

Hi Bill,

I loaded the softonic web site into Edge, opened the menu with alt F but
was unable to find any mention of cookies and site permissions under any
of the headings in the menu.


What am I doing wrong?


Thanks


Tom

Hi,
Using: up to date W10 Home, 64 bit and latest Jaws.

The following announcement, along with others, has been appearing a
couple of times a day for a little while and am wondering if anyone else
is also receiving these annoying messages. More importantly, what can
be done about them.


Action center
Notifications from Microsoft Edge group
Clear all notifications for Microsoft Edge Button
Your Norton has Expired Today?
Renew Now For 2021
3:46 PM • en.softonic.com

Both Defender and Microsoft Malicious File Removal tool has been run but
found nothing.

As for Norton's, it has never been used on this system so obviously the
message is a scam.


Any ideas?

Thanks

Tom
