One of Windows 10 capabilities that you are always in touch with is the notification system in the section next to the Action Center, which always shows you important Windows messages. Sometimes some users do not receive these messages at all. But how to fix this problem to re-enable notification in Windows 10?

One of the main reasons for this problem is the disabling of a feature in the Action Center, which can be reactivated with the methods described below to work normally.

Restart the system

The easiest and first way to do this is to restart the operating system. This will most likely eliminate software problems in the Action Center and cause you to see Windows 10 notifications again.

Is the notification banner disabled?

Sometimes the problem of not displaying notifications in Windows 10 may be due to the notification banner being disabled. To be able to reactivate it, you must follow the procedure described below.

1.       First, open the Windows 10 settings via the Start Menu. You can also open this option by holding the Windows key + I button on the keyboard. Then go to the System section.

2.       Click on Notifications & actions here. Then activate the toggle button next to Get notifications from apps and other senders

3.       In this section, scroll down to see the list of programs. Select all the important programs one by one.

4.       For each program, there are two options, Show notification banners and Show notifications in the action center, both of which you must activate


5.       You also need to set the Priority option to Top for a program’s messages to be placed in the Windows 10 notification banner section.

Background Apps

In Windows 10, there is an option that allows you to disable applications that run in the background of Windows. So maybe the Windows 10 notification banner is in this mode too, so it won’t show you a notification. To enable it, first, go to Windows 10 settings and then to the Privacy sections, then Background apps. From here, you need to find the app and let it run in the background.

Focus Assist

One of the special tools of Windows 10 is the Focus Assist. This option disables the notification system in Windows 10. So you can solve the problem by disabling it. To access it, go to Settings, System, and then Focus Assist. Here you will see an off option in the main section. Click on it to disable Focus assist.

Is battery Saver mode is on?

The Battery Saver Mode option in Windows 10 is one of those features that optimizes the processes that work in the background of Windows, causing the notification banner to be disabled. To get rid of this, go to Settings, select the System section, and then go to Battery. From here, click the toggle button next to Battery Saver to disable it. Also, check the Turn Battery saver on the automatic option and set it to the lowest possible number.

System File Checker Scan

If none of the above methods work for you, you can run System File Checker on Windows to see which notifications have damaged files or programs in Windows 10. To do this, first, open the Windows Search option and type the word Command Prompt. Right-click on the program that appears and selects Run as administrator. In the window that opens, type this text and then press Enter: ‘sfc / scannow’. The process takes a few seconds. When done, close the Prompt command and restart Windows.

Re-register Action Center

Sometimes, due to an internal problem, the Action Center may not display the Windows 10 notification. To do this, you can re-register it.

1.       First, go to Windows Settings and type the word PowerShell. When the PowerShell application appears, right-click on it and select Run it as administrator.

2.       Then copy the code we wrote in the next section, enter it in PowerShell, and press Enter.

3.       Get-AppxPackage | % {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$ ($ _. InstallLocation) \ AppxManifest.xml” -verbose}

4.       Once done, you can restart Windows.

Update Windows

There is also another way to re-display the notification banner in Windows 10. You need to update your Windows 10 to the latest version to fix the bug. To do this, first, go to the settings section and select the Update & Security option. Select Window Update from this section as well. Find the option that says Check for an update and click on it to start the update.
