    Ah, yeah. My screenshot is from within Windows 7. Windows 8 uses toast notifications instead, so that would be why you do not have the option in Windows 8.

    I'm afraid that I haven't found a way to increase the display time of toast notifications yet.

    You're welcome. Hopefully I'll find the registry entry for it soon, if available.

    Hey Jeff,

    If you haven't already figured it out yet, it's the same setting for the taskbar notification area notices.
