Unreal Engine is blocking notifications when maximized

When Unreal Engine is maximized/full-screen, notifications from other programs (or at the very least Discord) do not show up, though the sound can still be heard. I’ve had this problem with both UE4 and UE5 and it’s been happening for a while now. I’ve tried turning off Windows Focus Assist, but it did not seem to solve the problem, which leads me to believe that it’s an issue with Unreal Engine itself. Has anyone else experienced this or found a solution?

Have you tried the multi-pane registry fix from nVidia? It fixes other flickering issues, but may also be related to notification window bugs, especially if you use a multi-monitor setup…

Hi, thanks for responding. Unfortunately, this did not work. I added the registry, restarted my PC, and reopened/maximized my UE5 project, but the notifications are still being blocked. Also, I do not have multi-monitor setup, in case that’s important to know.
