Display Win8 "toast" notifications from your scripts

ToastNotification is a tiny console tool for Windows 8 which allows you to display "toast" notifications (pop-up alerts which briefly show a message, then disappear automatically) from your own scripts.

The program is a tiny download, which contains a single executable (L2ToastNotification.exe), an image which you can replace to customise the look of your notification, and a text file (Toast.txt) with instructions.

Using ToastNotification is as easy as passing it three arguments, each enclosed in quotes: a title, line 1 and line 2.

L2ToastNotification "Pay attention!" "Free space running short on" "Drive D: !!!"

You must supply three arguments, or ToastNotification crashes (passing it an empty string, "", works fine).

Each argument can only display a maximum of about 27 characters, so choose carefully.

ToastNotification also displays the 90x90 image ToastNotification.png in your alert. The default image contains the developer's logo, but you can either delete this to leave a blank space, or replace it with a logo or some other image of your own.

Whatever you choose, the alert displays for around 7 seconds before disappearing. You cannot change this timeout, the alert's appearance (background colour etc) or define a "click" action for the alert.


An easy way to give your scripts a professional touch.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
