How to Modify Toast Notification Time Duration or Disable it Completely in Windows 8

Toast notification (pop up notification) that appears in the upper-right corner of your Windows 8’s screen is a new Windows feature that allow Modern UI apps (Metro apps) to communicate with the user whether the user is in another app, on the Start screen, or on the desktop. By default, the time duration of a toast notification is 5 second after which it disappeared from the screen.

If the 5 second is too short for you, Windows 8 allows you to modify the toast notification time duration from its settings menu. Also, you can disable it completely, if it is annoying you.

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!
