Disabling Annoying Popups?

Hello all,

I currently have the latest edition of Zorin installed and, minus this one annoyance, I absolutely and thoroughly love it. The issue I'm having is that each and every single time I either move a file, delete a file, or compress a file, I get this annoying popup that pops up at the top of the screen asking me to undo the action.

It's really frustrating to see this thing pop up every single time I do something with a file. I've tried to turn notifications off, turned on "Do Not Disturb" and they do nothing about the popups.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Tap ctrl+h in your Home Directory and you will see your Hidden folders and files.
One of them is ~/.config.
Navigate to ~/.config/gtk-3.0
Right click an open area of the window and select to create a new file.
Name it gtk.css
Paste into it:

.app-notification { 
    padding: 0;
    margin: -80px 0 0 0; 
    background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.0;
}

Save the file.
Log out and in or tap alt+f2 and enter in the letter r and hit the enter key to refresh the gnome desktop.
That should get rid of the annoying popup.

This is the kind of thread that gets bookmarked for my "Zorin Book of Knowledge". :slight_smile:
