Windows 10: Can't change Windows 10 notifications

    Can't change Windows 10 notifications


    You can change the notifications in the Settings menu but all the toggles are greyed out. I am pretty sure i could change them before the anniversary 10 update.

    Do you mean in 'Notifications and actions'? The toggles shouldn't be greyed out, I have the Anniversary Update and they're all blue for me.

    There seem to have been similar problems (at least, just for the 'Show apps notifications' toggle) before the AU, conflict with a 3rd-party AV seems to have been the cause. See...

    Do you use Defender, or something else?

    If it's just Defender, then you may find this (Solved) thread useful.

    Just a thought,
    if the top one is off, all the others will be greyed out.

    On my Win10 Desktop I have only one that is blue and that's for the Bluetooth adapter, all the others are gray and not all will turn blue when clicking to open the feature such as All settings. And not all will work such as VPN and Airplane mode when the feature doesn't exist/isn't installed.

    Which it's exactly what i have problem with, "get notifications from apps and senders is grayed out. I have no idea which other setting would make it non switchable.
