How to Change How Many Notifications are Visible per App in Windows 10 Action Center
InformationThe Action Center in Windows 10 collects and shows notifications and alerts from traditional Windows applications and system notifications, alongside those generated from modern apps. Notifications are then grouped in the Action Center by app and time. When the Action Center gets a new notification, it will briefly show a notification banner above the taskbar notification area to let you know.
Starting with Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14316, you can adjust how many notifications are visible per app in the action center. The default is now 3 per app. If an app has more than 3 notifications, just click or tap to expand and see all notifications for that app.
This tutorial will show you how to change how many notifications are visible per app in the Action Center for your account in Windows 10.
