Notifications from CrankWheel are not showing on Windows 10

The most common reason for this issue is when upgrading from older versions of Windows, sometimes you need to manually grant permission to Google Chrome to show notifications:

  1. Press the Windows key, type Settings, and open the Settings app
  2. Click on System
  3. Click on Notifications
  4. Under "Get notifications from these senders" check that there is an entry for Google Chrome and that it is enabled.

Sometimes, the issue is Windows' "Focus Assist" mode being turned on, which will disable notifications from all programs. Please see details on how to turn off this mode, as well as other possible reasons for notifications not showing up, in this article.

Another possibility is that a Chrome setting has been set to disallow notifications specifically from CrankWheel. To check if this is the case:

  1. Open a new browser tab in Chrome
  2. Type in chrome://settings/content/notifications into the address bar and hit Enter
  3. In the search box at the top right, type in CrankWheel
  4. Make sure there is no entry for CrankWheel under the "Block" section.

If enabling those notifications does not resolve the problem, then a workaround is to do as follows:

  1. Open a new browser tab in Chrome
  2. Type in chrome://flags/#enable-native-notifications into the address bar and hit Enter.
  3. Set the drop-down menu to the right of the "Enable native notifications" section (which should show up at the top of the page) to Disabled, then click "Relaunch Now" at the bottom of the page.

Notifications after this from Chrome will show up in a slightly older-looking style but should show up reliably.
