Xbox Move Notification MattSource: Windows Central

Do you ever find it annoying when an achievement pops up and hides UI elements or subtitles in a game you're playing? Me too. That is why finally, thankfully, Xbox is allowing us to move the default position of the Xbox One notification area.

While some games will still choose for us, the vast majority should simply fall back on whatever the default is. This new feature requires the February 2020 Xbox update, and here's how you can use it.
