The toaster notifications in Windows 8 are a nice addition, however they can be annoying at times and you may wish to disable them temporarily, or maybe even permanently, here’s how.

The problem with this is it disables all notifications even those on your lock screen. However, we can change this, click on the More PC setting link. This will open the Metro Control Panel
