To extend the toast notification time duration, press Win Key + C and select Settings, then choose PC Settings.

 Under “Easy of access” settings, in the “Show notification for” column, choose the desired time (up to 5 minutes) for notifications delay.

 (Note: it’ll also affect the classic notification appeared in the system tray)

To disable notification, under PC Settings, select “Notifications” and Off the “Show apps notifications” from On position by dragging the slider to left. That’s all!
