How do I stop pop ups on the desktop on Windows 10?
These are not pop up ads that happen on a web site.
They happen on my desktop as little pop ups in the lower right corner of my computer screen.
They look like this video I recorded here:

I do not know if they are tied somehow to another program working -- like the Windows 10 mail program -- or if they are a feature of chrome, but they are outside any other running program.

These are NOT pop up ads on Youtube.  These are on my desktop.  And they must have something to do with Chrome because most say so:



I figured it might have something to do with a program that is run when the system starts.  Here is what CCleaner has to say about what is run at start up:

It looks like at some point you gave us.best-jobs-online.com permission to send you notifications.  To manage this, go to chrome://settings/ (or click the three-dot menu symbol and select Settings), select Privacy and Security on the left-hand side, select Site Settings, Notifications, then add us.best-jobs-online.com to the blocked area, or take it off the allow area.

Thank you!  I have just done what you have asked.  I have not waited long enough to see if it works but I have a feeling, given the list of allowed and disallowed websites I saw listed there, that this is the trick that will work.
