Hi there,

Does anyone know if this is supposed to work on Windows 10? I'm not getting any notifications. They're appearing in the new 'action centre' but not popping up as notifications as per other applications.

Hi!

I haven't gotten to test this yet with Windows 10. But given if the toast implementation isn't changed too much it should be possible. I don't have Windows 10 yet, so I'm not able to test it out, I'm afraid. But hopefully someone can dig into what's causing this.

Have you tried running toaster manually, to see if you get any output?

Perhaps there's a setting in the new Windows for activating notifications, as it is visible in the "action centre"?

Hi @mikaelbr,

Thanks for the prompt reply!

I've not tried running it manually, although I will do. Looking through all the notification settings on the new OS and it looks as though everything is on. I've tried numerous things but nothing seems to have worked yet.

Hoping someone more in the know can help us find a solution, as it's a little over my head.

One thing that could potentially be causing this is change in what apps are allowed to do notifications. Previously you had to have a shortcut on the start screen.

For anyone with access to Visual Studio and Windows 10: Should try to run toaster project in VS and see if any changes needs to be made. Could compare with this Windows 10 toaster guide

+1
Like mentioned above, notifications show in the action center but aren't being shown as popup. Since the notification is a toast, you shouldn't have to allow an app. Toasts are allowed by default and can be changed in the settings.

Yes, I've checked the settings and it appears toast is active.

I have same problem on Windows 10, but notifications worked well in first three days of using new OS, and then just stopped popping up, without any changes in the settings.

It's a Windows configuration issue. You can make it work by going to System > Notifications & Actions. The 'toast' app needs to have Banners enabled. (You can activate banners by clicking on the 'toast' app and setting the 'Show notification banners' to On)

I can confirm that seems to have worked. It's very unclear with the new UI. You actually have to click on the Toast app name in the settings, which will reveal three more options, one of which is the 'Show notification banners'. This can be switched to on and I am now getting the notifications on screen. Really happy now, thank you @ionutz2k2.

@lawsonk1215 Typical Microsoft UI fails, as ever. Good job we have people in the know!

I can't find the 'toast' app from the list.. except there is an 'nw-sample-demos' which is relevant
