Keyboard shortcut to dismiss notification? Is there one? It's so annoying, I keep having to click it to go away!

Set it to banner instead of alert in system preferences.

Option click the icon. Then the floating messages and banners are gone until the next day.

Just to be more specific: option + click on the notification center icon on the menubar

If I understand, the OP doesn't want to disable notifications with a keyboard shortcut but to dismiss the notification popups themselves via the keyboard.

this would be a great feature to have!! either a traditional keyboard shortcut, or a double-tap of a key infrequently used alone, similar to what activates Dictation (e.g., double-tap the command-key perhaps?)

cheers,

Yes, why is it not possible to dismiss individual notifications on the fly with a simple keyboard shortcut? It's so annoying to have to put up with the popups, even for only a few seconds when I need to click on a tab there. I know I can drag right, but it would be so much faster and more convenient if I could just do it by keyboard.

And, no, I don't want to turn notifications off altogether. Every now and then there is a notification that I want to respond to and then it's great (incidentally, it'd be nice to have a simple keyboard command for that, too, but it's not as important as having one to dismiss), but the vast majority I look at real quickly and decide to ignore for now.
