How to change priority of notifications in Windows 10

In Windows 10 we usually receive notifications on a regular basis. They can be those that come from the operating system itself, such as saying that there is a failure or we have updates available, but also the applications can issue notifications. In addition, there are times when several can reach us at the same time. So we have to prioritize some in our case.

This is something we can manage at all times in Windows 10. The operating system has a way to manage the priority of the notifications we receive, so we limit this in some way. Thus, if several arrive at the same time, we will see the most important ones first.

While it is unusual for let’s get a lot of notifications at the same time, the priority option can serve us on more occasions. Since there are certain notifications that we really want to see, we do not want to miss, because they provide some important information. While there are others that may not be so decisive.
