How To Change Position Of Your Desktop Notifications Pop Up on Chrome

Where do you want the desktop notification pop up to show up ? Top right or Top left ?  Or Lower Left or Lower right ? We can change this !

Okay, I was quite surprised when I saw the desktop notification from my Nytimes App with break news. But, I was kind of excited when I saw that I have an option to change the desktop notification position from the settings menu of this notification.

All you need to do is click on the wrench icon ( same icon we use to open settings on chrome ) and select “change position” and you will see all your options.  And yes, this works πŸ™‚

Now, what we need to figure out is, is this specific to any particular app, or will all my notifications show up on top right corner of my screen ( yes ! that’s my preference now ) because I have chosen this here.

update : Yes, this changes notification location for all apps. Confirmed.

waiting for more input from you all on this, try this and let me know !!!

    But how do you change the displaying monitor when you have more than one? I want the notifications going to my secondary monitor as long as I am working on the main one…
