Here is a Windows 10 tutorial that explains how to schedule Quiet Hours. Earlier, Windows 10 came with a feature to turn on and off Quiet Hours manually but there was no option to set custom time to turn on and off Quiet Hours automatically. Thankfully, now it is possible to select start and end times for Quiet Hours. Windows 10 will automatically enable Quiet Hours and then stop it based on the time set by you. When Quiet Hours are active, you won’t receive desktop notifications for apps (depending on the settings set by you) while giving the presentation, playing games, or doing some other work in your Windows 10 PC.
To schedule Quiet Hours in Windows 10, you need to access System menu under Settings and go to Quiet Hours page. There you will see a new option to set start and end time for Quiet Hours. Before following the steps, do note the feature to schedule Quiet Hours has come with 17074 preview build. That simply means you can use this feature only when you are using preview build 17074 of Windows 10. Or else, if you want to get this feature without installing the preview build, then you need to wait for the next stable version of Windows 10.
Above you can see a notification in Action Center that Quiet Hours turned on automatically on schedule.
