How to make Windows 10 notifications duration longer

Windows 10 notifications are the alerts that pop-up in the bottom right corner of the Desktop. These alerts are related to any reminder set by you, a calendar event, a download completed, a Windows update reminder, etc. These notifications are intended to get your attention related to your system.

These incoming notifications are managed via a new section called Action Center in Windows 10. The notifications automatically appear for a few seconds and then disappear.
