    Default Notifications in Windows 10, version 1903

    Hi there.

    Notifications are working perfectly with a pop-up when not in full screen but they stop working when in full screen mode. Ideally I would like to get notification when in full screen mode in the action centre and not through a pop-up. If this is not possible I would like to get them through a pop-up when in full screen mode. I've tried numeruous setting combinations without any success.

    Is somebody aware of a solution and if yes, what settings do I have to undertake for this? Many thanks for your help.

    Thank you Driftwood. I did all that previously with no success. I then got in touch with Microsoft twice: a) first person checked my settings, all good and then reinstalled an update, b) second person told me that in order to get full screen notifications I have to be in tablet mode (even though I have a laptop with no touch screen). Bottom line: it's still not working.

    I have found this article to be very useful for new features in Win 10 1903:

    Thank you for your replies but unfortunately they didn't help. All my settings are correct but I don't get notifications in full screen, I get them only when not in full screen.

    Yes but that is the option that is default now in 1903, you can change it if you read the article.

    Try turning off Focus Assist completely.

    Yes, I've read the article and I did turn Focus Assist and all subcategories totally off. No success. Same result as described above. For various reasons I strongly believe there is a bug. Many thanks for your endeavours.

    You have rebooted after turning off Fast Start I suppose?

    No I haven't but I have not changed the settings back to its original setting, and rebooted and restarted the computer for a couple of times since.
