How to Change Notification Priority in Windows 10 Action Center

Microsoft has launched an amazing version of Windows in summer 2015. It was distributed among millions of users for free. It might be the most spectacular operating system by Microsoft yet. The developers of this version which is known as Windows 10 included many new and distinguished features. These features gave this operating system its new identity. These features include a new start menu, Cortana, Task view, Action Centre and many more. One of the features includes the notifications from different apps on your Windows 10. The major problem faced by Window’s users is to manage these notifications. But here in this guide you will learn how to solve this problem through Windows 10 Action Centre.
Action Centre is a very great development in Windows 10. It allows you to see and manage all your notifications in one single area. This in return makes it possible for you to open or skip these notifications one by one according to your priority. It is a preinstalled feature in Windows 10 by its developers. So you do not need any other software or app for this amazing tool. Installing any version of Windows 10 will give you the access to this amazing feature.
Actions Centre has its own way of dealing with the notifications and presenting you with them. The developers programmed it in a way that it does not show you the notification when you actually receive them instead it shows you the notifications according to the apps. This thing is an advantage and can be unlike by many users at many times.
The advantage to this feature is that you can go through the notifications of one app at once and can move on to the next one later. For example, if you received 10 notifications of your Facebook app at different times and some other notifications from other apps. So you can go through your Facebook once and then you can go to the other notifications by other apps.
Meanwhile the disadvantage of this feature is that you may get notifications by the default priority set by the developers. The developers have set the priority to different apps according to them and so you will see the notifications according to that priority.
Although its set to default priorities but you can change these settings and set priority to the apps that are most important to you. Below you can find the solution to this problem. For this solution you do not need any other software or app developed by any third party. You wouldn’t even need any registry tweak. This solution requires just a few clicks to get it done. And the procedure will be carried out in the new settings panel of Windows 10. So just follow the steps described below to get notifications as you want them.
