    How to setup this sound notification feature?


    Hi,

    My setup of windows 8 went without any problems. I am currently using the mail feature which is great, unlike the Android tablet when a mail arrives there is sound notification.

    How do I set up the sounding notification on windows 8?

    Thanks

    It seems there is something of an issue with the Mail app, although PC Settings reports it as having a notification, the Mail app is just being cheeky. There is a fix I found. I haven't tried to see if it does work, but I have a good feeling it does.

    Follow the instructions on how to do this, they're pretty simple but I didn't want to go to the length of typing it out as it's fairly menial. That should fix it!

    well it did not work.. I will try a few more times, if I don't come back, you can assume it did not work.
