Windows 10 - Disable warning notification about disabled firewall via GPO
Click the Start button, type Security & Maintenance and then click on the Security & Maintenance control panel option. You can also go directly to the control panel and get there that way.
Choose Change Security and Maintenance settings.
Uncheck Network Firewall
It's not possible to disable the firewall notifications alone, but since Windows 10 build 1607 it has been possible to disable all Security and Maintenance Notifications using
HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Notifications\Settings\ Windows.SystemToast.SecurityAndMaintenance\Enabled = 0 (DWORD)
UPDATE: According to Ladislav Louka, the required value has changed to
1 since build 1809.
Either add this registry key directly via Group Policy or create a custom ADMX template for it. See Disabling Windows 10 Notifications via Group Policy by Jeffrey Harness.
I think any of these notifications equally doesn't need attention of a single user, but these settings must be monitored & maintained by the administrators, instead. The scope of this modification seems ok.
I have spent 3 days testing this on 2 machines. When the following is in place the notifications do not pop up for the the firewall. When I remove them they comeback. I also tested inserting this into the default user hive so that all new users logging in will get the the registry change.
This is for Windows 10 1809.
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\PushNotifications] "NoToastApplicationNotification"=dword:00000001 "NoToastApplicationNotificationOnLockScreen"=dword:00000001
