How to Keep Your Windows 10 Notifications on Screen Longer

Display Notifications for Longer Time in Windows 10

Click Start > Settings > Ease of Access > Other options. Click on the “Show notifications for” list box then choose an appropriate time interval. You can choose from 5 seconds, 7 seconds, 15 seconds, 30 seconds, 1 minute, or 5 minutes.


That’s it; your notifications will no longer be quite as fleeting.

If you set a long notification display time, like 30 seconds or more, you can dismiss notifications by clicking the X in the top-right.

If you want to make further adjustments to your notification behavior, check out our previous article for instructions.
