In this post I will discuss a method which you can use for displaying status and notifications for some of the apps in lock screen. Advantage of setting up notifications in lock screen is that you can check important updates from apps like Mail, Messaging, Skype, Weather, and Calendar from the lock screen itself without logging in.
To enable status and notifications of Apps in lock screen in Windows 8, follow the below given steps:
1) Go to: Charms bar –> Settings –> Change PC Settings.
2) Go to: Personalize.
3) On the right side under “Lock Screen” tab and under “Lock Screen apps”, click on the + button to add apps for which you want to receive notifications in lock screen. Under “Choose an app to display detailed status”, click on the button to show the detailed status and notification for an app.
That’s it. You have successfully added apps to the lock screen for which status and notifications will be displayed.
