    Windows Popup Notification Issues/Bugs

    I have an incredibly hard time trying to search through Google and posts and media to find what I'm looking for, so I'm making a post here.

    For a pretty long time, I've had a massive annoyance with Windows' notification popups that show up in the corner. I want to be able to use them but it's extremely irritating trying to deal with it.

    My first problem is that, for some reason, the popups it creates block so much more over my current game/browser than the size of the popup itself. In the included image I outlined in red of how much space the popup takes compared to it's actual size. This gets incredibly annoying when I'm busy doing things on a game or working on something when I don't mean to click on the popup or it gets in the way of my mouse. Is this a bug? Is it like this for most systems? Is there a way to stop this from happening?

    My second problem is that when one popup shows up, it gives me a second notification before or after the actual notification I just received, of a completely random, other notification that I've had recently so I would have to keep on closing popups until it stops, but it's usually only two. This combined with the massive hitbox of the popups gets incredibly annoying when I'm busy with things. Is this a bug? How would I fix this?

    Is there a way to make popup notifications last less than 5 seconds? It is very quick to scan over a popup and it is usually message notifications that I receive, so it would be so nice to have the popups last much less time and don't require me to shoo them off myself.


  2. (SOLVED/CLOSED)looking for help with Android phone CONSTANT wireless signal notification

    Yeah, thats not a solution she is interested in......I've suggested that course of action. Thanks though.

    Just to clarify, I feel that there MUST be a step, or series of steps to turn off JUST the wireless notification sound. Thats what Im driving @ here.

  4. Windows Popup Notification Issues/Bugs

    Windows 10 popup notification is obtrusive - resize?


    I realize that the notifications popups are larger in texts in Windows. We will help you.

    • Are you facing this issue specific to the notification popups?
    • Are you facing this issue in any other user accounts also?
    This issue might have caused due to some third party applications recently installed and there might be some system files conflicting to cause this issue.

    Let's try the below steps and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

    Method 1: Perform a clean boot and check if it helps.

    A clean boot is performed to start Windows by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This helps eliminate software conflicts that occur when you install a program or an update or when you run a program in Windows. You may also troubleshoot
    or determine what conflict is causing the problem by performing a clean boot.

    To disable all non-Microsoft services consult the article called Clean Boot.


    Disclaimer: After troubleshooting, refer to this section "How to reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting"

    Method 2: I also suggest you to perform a
    SFC scan (System file checker) scan.

    How to use the System File Checker tool:

    System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files.

    Keep us posted if the larger text issue in notification popups is resolved. We are glad to help you further.
