Desktop Notifications - Couple Questions

  • Hi. I have a couple of questions regarding how desktop notifications are implemented in the new Opera (26.0). I use them extensively with Google Play Music, and every time a new track plays, Windows 8.1 makes an annoying chime sound when the notification pops up. I would very much like to turn that off.

    As for the more minor issues, is there any way to move them from the top-right to the bottom-right of the screen? And also to make them white instead of eye-bleeding red? (Screenshot of a notification: (72).png?dl=0)


  • Find the "Change System Sounds" menu. Find the Notification sound in the list and disable it. No idea about the notification placement though.

  • Excellent, thank you. That was my most significant issue.
