How The Hell Do You Disable Remote Play Together Notifications?

I am so freaking steaming mad at valve. After a recent play session with a friend having to reload company of heroes 2 the 10th time, I've had it. In-home streaming used to work like a charm. switching away and then back almost never had an issue and was near instantaneous. Now in home streaming is a pile of crap. switching away and then back is almost guaranteed not to work. and on the occasion where it does work it takes a long time to recover. If that wasn't bad enough, you used to be able to kill the stream and restart it to fix any issues. Now stopping the stream kills the game on the host machine forcing a restart. This basically all started back when Steam was updated for remote play.
In home streaming was the killer function for me. Not only because I use Linux as my daily driver, but also because key games I play don't like being switched away even when run on Windows, but streaming allowed me to seamlessly switch back and forth.
The downward spiral has been slow and steady. At first it occasionally didn't like to be switched away and then back. would sometimes crash, but restarting the stream got things back up and running. Now I virtually never can switch away and then back without the stream crashing or not responding at all.
The main issue seems to be full screen. Warlock, doesn't allow me to switch away full screen anymore even though it used to work flawlessly for YEARS. But what does work now is if I hit Alt+Enter to window the stream and then switch away. I can then switch back with ease and Alt+Enter back to full screen.
For the love of god
1) Fix streaming so you can Alt + Tab away and back
2) Allow to restart the stream like it used to be 2 months ago. Pressing the streaming button would open and close the stream quickly fixing any issues you might have. Now it's kill and restart the game.
If you can't do the above then revert to the old way of in-home streaming. I give 2 $hiz about remote play.

im trying to play cuphead with a friend online. we both enabled the beta participation and enabled remote play, yet there is no button that allows me to invite them to remote play the game. any suggestions for what could be wrong?

Should be out of Beta now, apparently you need to start a Local Coop, maybe it is also a problem with input (Portal 2 needs 1 keyboard and 1 controller for ex. .....)
Is it possible to remote play from another pc in local network? I have gaming pc in my "server room" and nuc pc on my desk, and I want to utilize gaming pc to play games. But, when I start game from my nuc pc, games starts on host, but I get this screen on my nuc pc thank you

On your friends list, if you right click your friend, there should be a invite to remote play option

Has anyone here experienced that after remote play hosting, all your audio on your PC is being treated as input for your mic? What i mean is if I play a video on Youtube, everyone in discord will hear that video (not noise bleed from mic, my friends say sound quality is as if they were watching the video themselves). Thanks!

404 Not Found. Class act, that. Don't you have a bugzilla or something that works?

Earlier today we play 2 game with Remote play,Unrailed! and Tool up!
They can invite 3 player
but now they can only invite 1 player to play
if you want to invite second player
it will show "End Remote player Stream"
then the first player will lost connection
How could this be?
