Edit: a Solution was found. You can view step by step directions on my personal wordpress blog.
Specifically I am trying to enable app notifications so I can get my emails from the Windows 10 Mail app as they come in. Despite notifications being enabled in the app itself, windows refuses to show the notifications when I send myself a test email. I have also included a Screenshot in this post so you can see for yourself what I am experiencing. I do not have access to gpedit.msc as I am using the Windows 10 Home edition. I have tried to add the dword "ToastEnabled" = 1 to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\PushNotifications" and it didn't help. I have search google and found nothing and I'm at my wits end trying to access my notifications on this new windows.
