    How do I change the monitor in which my notifications pop up on?


    I'm running Windows 10 and I have two monitors, whenever I get a notification from either an application or from a website like Facebook, it appears on my primary monitor. I would like to know if I can make the notifications appear on my second monitor without changing my second monitor to become my primary monitor. Changing my second monitor to become my primary one is out of the question.

    Thanks for the help!

    Hello @Chickenkickflip , welcome to tenforums!

    Right click on your Taskbar and click on Taskbar Settings;
    under Multiple displays turn Off 'Show taskbar on all displays';
    right click on the primary Taskbar again and unlock it, drag the Taskbar to your secondary monitor, lock Taskbars;
    go back to Settings and turn 'Show taskbar on all displays' back on.

    EDIT:
    One tiny drawback: The full Taskbar right click options will only be available on the moved Taskbar, (your secondary monitor).

    I tried this and the notifications still pop up on my primary monitor. Is there any other way?

    Nonetheless thank you

    I just noticed that here too!

    It's an old trick from Windows 8 that I'd forgotten about, so, glad you asked!

    However, the Action Center icon is over on the secondary monitor but the Action Center (WinKey+A) itself still opens on the primary monitor! Sorry bout that!

    Windows Projection (WinKey+P) opens on the secondary monitor, but not Action Center!!! Go figure!

    Again, my apologies for leading you astray!

    Thanks mate!

    The only other thing I can suggest is to do the reverse of the above; make the secondary monitor the main display but drag the primary Taskbar over to the first display, unless that's still out of the question.

Is it possible to change the style/design of Windows 10 notifications?
If you ask me, the huge bulky notifications in Windows 10 look awful. It'd be great if I could make them semi-transparent or sync them to something like Snarl to change the design altogether. Is that possible at all? 111999

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.
