How to Remove Notification Center in Mac

The Notification center is a new feature added in Mac Mountain Lion. It allows you to receive notification from various apps. Some people will find it useful while many others will find it useless. If you belong to the latter, here is an easy way to remove the notification center and reclaim back the small icon space in the system tray occupied by the Notification center icon.

Open a terminal and type:

launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchAgents/com.apple.notificationcenterui.plist

That’s it. The Notification Center (and its icon) will magically disappear from your desktop.

To retrieve it back, replace the “unload” with “load

launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchAgents/com.apple.notificationcenterui.plist

That was easy, isn’t it?
