Windows 8.1 makes it very easy to configure alerts for all sorts of things. It can beep when you’ve got a new email, bong when you’ve got an upcoming appointment or make all sorts of noises when you’ve not a new call on Skype. All those things are great during normal business hours, but what about those quiet times when you just want to watch your cat videos in peace?

Windows 8.1 implements a new feature called quiet hours that will help you out. 7tutorial’s Ciprian Adrian Rusen explains in a recent article that you can select times where Windows will stifle those annoying alerts and even silence Skype calls to keep things quiet. This is great if you’ve got your computer running all night while you sleep or even during work hours when you don’t want to be bothered.

If you think this feature is as useful as we do, share it with your friends.
