[SOLVED] Desktop notifications timeout on Windows 7 native client


I have a quetion about notification duration time in MatterMost desktop application.
When I set it to: Unlimited, and the app is running under Windows 7, the notification dissapears after few seconds. Under Windows 10 everything works ok. Client version: 4.0.0

Could you help me please?
Best regards


Hey @t0mash

When you say everything works ok on Windows 10, is it that the notification time is unlimited there?

On Windows 7, have the notifications always disappeared after a few seconds, or is this a new issue?

  1. Yes. On Windows 10 notification time is really unlimited.
  2. I a new user. I don’t have any info about older releases.


@t0mash Actually, this issue is already tracked: https://github.com/mattermost/desktop/issues/601

It’s an issue with Electron, the underlying software that the desktop app is built on. They have a fix but haven’t released it yet, so we’re waiting for it.

Should hopefully be fixed soon!


Version 4.0.1 still affected. Any news on this?


Hi @t0mash,

As per the above issue the fix has been merged…


That means it work correctly in 4.0.2?


Hi @t0mash,

Yes, the fix will be available in 4.0.2 :slight_smile:
