I'm looking for software that improves upon the default notification system built into Windows such that if any notifications come up when I'm not there to see them or just paying attention to something else and don't see them, it'd help with not missing them.
I'm thinking something which indicates that notifications were missed which doesn’t go away until you acknowledge that fact and which allows the ability to view missed notifications.
The use case is that when I get an instant messenger notification, if I’m not there to see it, it won’t be up when I get back to the computer. I have changed my notification persistence setting to something like 5 min before they disappear to help with this, but that has multiple drawbacks / shortcomings.
Free or paid are both fine.
