I create an approve workflow in spd 2013 by using action item "start a task process"

Testing is ok, but I got 2 emails.

One says Task Assigned-Task name

Another one says Tasks-Task name has been assigned to you.

How can I turn off the email that generated by task and only keep one?

Thanks in advance.

Go into the Workflow Tasks list and go to List Settings. Click on Advanced Settings and then set Send e-mail when ownership is assigned? to No.
