what is Metro App Toast Notifications?

Toast notification is a very new feature, introduced in windows 8. According to Microsoft, Toast notifications are an optional part of the app experience and are intended to be raised only when your app is not the active. Toast notifications in Windows 8 are rectangular block type notifications that appear in the upper right corner of your main display. The metro apps which are running in the background cause to pop these types of notifications to seek user’s attention to perform a further action, whether the user is in another app, on the desktop, on the Start screen or on the lock screen. Suppose your Messaging metro app is opened in the background and you are in another application, now if you get a message on Facebook chat (assuming you are connected to your Facebook account using Messaging), a Toast notification will be popped for that. This Toast notifications feature is very helpful, but when you are working on a serious job and don’t want to be disturbed by these sudden notifications, you may want to turn off this feature. Not only that you may also want to receive Toast notification for some certain metro apps, not for all.

Follow the steps to turn Metro App Toast Notifications On or Off in Windows 8.
