How to Change Priority of App Notifications in Action Center in Windows 10

information   Information
The Action Center in Windows 10 collects and shows notifications and alerts from traditional Windows applications and system notifications, alongside those generated from modern apps. Notifications are then grouped in the Action Center by app and time. When the Action Center gets a new notification, it will briefly show a notification banner above the taskbar notification area to let you know.

Starting with Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14316, you can select which app notifications are more important to you in action center. You can prioritize its notifications in action center to be one of 3 levels:
