In Windows 10, all kinds of notifications were replaced with Windows 8-like toasts which appear in the bottom right corner of the screen. Regardless of the event for which the notification is being shown e.g. AutoPlay, driver installation or new email - you will only see the Metro-like toast notifications. While we recently covered how to restore balloon notifications, many people prefer toast notifications, but would like to see them in the top right corner of the screen instead of bottom right. Here is how they can be moved to the bottom or to the top.
To move notification toasts to the bottom of the screen in Windows 10, you need to apply a simple Registry tweak as described below.
- Open Registry Editor.
- Go to the following Registry key:
- Create a new DWORD value named DisplayToastAtBottom and set it to 1. If you already have this value, then just modify its value data from 0 to 1. See the following screenshot:
- Sign out and log in back to your Windows account. Alternatively, you can just restart the Explorer shell.
To move notification toasts to the top of the screen in Windows 10, you need to set that DisplayToastAtBottom parameter to 0, as shown below:
Sign out and log in back to your Windows account or restart Explorer, and you will get toasts on the top of the screen.
