They are for PC *and* phone (well, Android at least). Easiest thing to do is just try. Go into your preferences and enable Push Notifications, make sure plenty of "Push" boxes are checked below, and see what happens. If you don't like them then turn them off, or else prune down the list of events that cause you to receive them (by unchecking the unwanted "Push" boxes).OK, thank Neil. But I still don't understand what they are.. are they more of a "phone thing" or are they a PC thing?
Is "pushing a notification" making a notification appear in the [useless & misunderstood why] "notification center" on Win10?
Usually the browser will also ask you if you want it to allow the site to give notifications. You need to say "yes". If you've already said no, then... well somewhere in the browser there are preferences to allow you to change your answer to "yes", but I don't know where that is off the top of my head, and it's different for different browsers. If you get there let us know and we'll sort that out.
