I have a Nokia Lumia 525. When I get a toast notification, it disappears within a second. If I want to see this notification again, what should I do?

If your Lumia is running Windows Phone 8.1, you can swipe down from the top of the display to reveal the notification centre, which contains all toast notifications. Tap on any entry to go to the respective app, or swipe right to dismiss.

If your Lumia is running Windows Phone 8.0, there unfortunately is no way to recall toast notifications. Your only hope is to have the respective app pinned to the Start screen, in which case its live tile should update to indicate that it has new content for you.

For more information on using the notification centre, see the official how-to at WindowsPhone.com.

To find out which version of Windows Phone you have, go to Settings → About → More info. To update your phone to the latest version, go to Settings → Phone update.

  • I have Lumia is running Windows Phone 8.0 and I can't get tile notifications from that app Jan 21, 2015 at 10:12
  • In that case you should update your phone to Windows Phone 8.1, which for Lumia phones comes with the Lumia Cyan firmware update. You can check whether or not this update is available for your phone here.
