Starting in Windows 10 Build 20221, the Your Phone app has a new pinning feature integrated with the notifications feed. With notifications pinning, you can easily pin to save important notifications that will stick to the top of your feed so they are readily accessible and distinguished from the rest of your notifications.
The Your Phone app in Windows 10 is able to receive notifications from the linked smartphone. The app shows them in a special area as a list of tiles.
If you are following Winaero, you may remember the blog post regarding the pinned notifications feature of the Your Phone app. At that time, the feature was selectively available to a small group of Insiders. This time, Microsoft has officially announced it.
To try out this feature, find a notification you want to pin and click the ellipses in the overflow menu. There you will see the option “Pin notification”.
Since the notification will now stick to the top of your feed, you no longer have to worry about losing the notification and can easily access the thread and use all your favorite functionality, like in-line reply. When you no longer need that notification thread, you can simply unpin it by clicking the unpin icon.
