Step 5

The problem with this is it disables all notifications, even those on our lock screen. However, we can change this, click on the more PC setting link. This will open the Metro control panel.

Step 7

Now if we want to turn off the Toaster Notifications for a certain application just toggle that application's setting, I tested this with the messenger application.

That's all there is to it, now we will still have Toaster Notifications for all the other apps and the notifications on our lock screen will still work.
