Notification banners in Windows 10 are displayed for 5 seconds before being moved to Action Center. This may seem rushed and rushed, especially if you receive a text-heavy alert. It’s possible to adjust the length of time that notifications stay on screen, giving you more time to read them before they disappear into Action Center.

How to increase the Windows 10 notification timeout
The setting for this, as is often the case with Windows 10, isn’t exactly where you’d expect it to be. The option isn’t mentioned anywhere in the main “System > Notifications” settings screen. Instead, go to the “Ease of Access” category in the Settings app by clicking its tile on the Settings home screen.
The relevant control can now be found under the “Simplify and personalize Windows” heading. You can choose from a variety of timeout options in the “Show notifications for” dropdown, ranging from the default of 5 seconds to 5 minutes.
You won’t be able to enter your own value, so you’ll have to choose from one of the six preset delays. We doubt you’ll want notification toasts onscreen for more than 30 seconds, but Microsoft does provide the option to use a very long timeout if you need it.
After you select a new value from the dropdown, the change will take effect immediately. Subsequent notifications will remain onscreen for the duration you specify before being moved to Action Center for later review.
