    Hi @blackrouter welcome to Ten Forums,

    During the Technical Preview many people complained about them(the toast's) appearing at the top, and there was a registry hack to move them to the bottom. I suppose it might still work. but in reverse, you could give it a shot:

    Open up RegEdit(Click Cortana/Search and type regedit) and navigate to:

    HEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer

    Make sure "Explorer" is selected, create a new DWORD value called:

    DisplayToastAtBottom (watch out for the capitalization or copy and paste)

    in the value field type 0

    sign out and back in.

    And you're done

    Or you can download this registry file and merge it:
    ChangeToastPosition.zip
    Just download. Right click open Properties. Check Unblock. Click OK. Extract(unzip) to where ever you want. Double click the Icon and give permission. Sign out and back in

    Cliff, thanx much for the instructions above... I'm in Build 10586 and I've tried both the registry tweak and the zip download (above) and neither work. I use the toast notifications but badly need to be in top right corner. The present position, lower right hides critical menus from the system tray. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Brad

    Hi @BRADCO,
    Sorry, it doesn't work anymore
    That was the only way I knew of.

    OK, isn't there a tweak to be able to view menus opening upward from the system tray? The toast notices cover the menu(s). Is there a way to get the menus to have focus (to open on top of the toast notification)? Is there a way to have the toast notifications be see thru or transparent? Thank you for any help

    You can control which programs & apps create toast notifications, and a few other settings.
    Go to Settings\System\\Notifications & Actions

    This might help reduce the popups, when you're trying to use the system tray icons.
