Windows 10: no banner or sound notifications, but they appear in action center Solved

    no banner or sound notifications, but they appear in action center


    So My computer is basically behaving as if quiet hours mode is activated, but quiet hours are NOT activated.
    For example, if I get an email or plug in a new device, the only thing that happens is the icon for action center goes from clear to white.

    This is only happening on my main user account, it is not happening on my admin account. I suspect that if I made a new account, the problem would not be present there either.

    So because this problem only exists in one user account and not the other, it must be some system setting that was flipped for one account and not the other. But I have searched high and low for any notification settings and they all seem correct.

    I have heard from a few reviews of mail notifications not working but I have not seen anyone else complaining of zero notifications.

    ok I changed the settings inside the mail app and now those seem to be working, still not working for inserting media but that is something that happens to me less often, so this is like 90% solved right now.
