    Notifications not showing up unless I click on notifications button


    I am not getting some notifications on Windows 10.

    For example, when I plug in my flash drive, there should be a popup dialog like in prior Windows asking how I'd like to use it (i.e. open folder to show files). But that doesn't appear in Windows 10.

    However, when I opened the action center notifications icon in the task bar, I saw that the notification for my flash drive actually did appear there.
    But why did it not appear on the screen? I have app notifications enabled in the settings menu.

    Also, very annoying is that when I then click on the notification in the action center, the notifications just disappears instead of allowing me to actually do what I want with it which is "tap to choose what happens with removable drives".

    You might try enabling and disabling "turn off toast notifications" in the group policy editor.

    Type "gpedit.msc" into the run dialog box (winkey + R), navigate to User Configuration -> Administrative Templets -> Start Menu & Taskbar -> Notifications
    Double click "turn off toast notifications" enable it, click "apply", disable it and click "apply".

    When I tried that, it said Windows can't find gpedit.msc

    Very odd! Try running sfc /scannow in admin. command prompt (right click Start + click "Command Prompt (Admin)"). If any errors are found (which I'm sure there will be) you might consider doing a an in-place upgrade (repair) or clean install.

    It finished and said "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations."

    Apparently gpedit has only been available for pro Windows versions since 7

    Hmm, I really don't know what to tell ya, besides if it were me I'd try a in-place upgrade anyway. It has solved issues I was having with a clean install; the installer updates to the latest patched version, so your install will be basically a current (opposed to the non patched version released on July 29) clean install, although I kept all my programs & files.
