    How to Have Toast Notifications Show at Top or Bottom of Display in Windows 10


    warning   Warning
    This tutorial no longer works starting with Windows 10 build 9926 released on January 23rd 2015.

    information   Information
    A toast notification is a transient message to the user that contains relevant, time-sensitive information and provides quick access to related content in an app. It can appear whether you are in another app, the Start screen, the lock screen, or on the desktop.

    A toast notification can contain text, and toast notifications on Windows can contain images. A toast can also play a system-defined sound when it displays.

    By default, toast notifications appear in the upper-right corner of your main display screen (top-left corner for right-to-left (RTL) languages).

    This tutorial will show you how to have toast notifications display at the top or bottom right corner of your main screen when they appear in Windows 10.

    This will only affect your user account, and not all users.
