  • Hi Hot,

    Although you cannot change the background color of the toast, the toast will always use the background color of your application (specified in the manifest).  This helps you identify that the toast is coming from a particular app.  Look at the background color of your application and change it to see this.

  • Hi Hot,

    1.  You cannot change the color and size

    2.  There are different templates you can use for your toast.  Just pick one without an image: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/windows.ui.notifications.toasttemplatetype.aspx

  • Hi Hot,

    That Icon is your application Icon and helps identify what application is sending the Toast.  You application Icon should be unique and easily identifiable.  You cannot change this behavior.
