I have an application called Beeper and I disabled notifications from it when it popped up via the notification popup. I tried to find it under settings notification and it's not there. I found this fix by editing the wpndatabase, but I'm lost where to edit for it to appear again:


%LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Notifications\wpndatabase.db

Can someone please help me read the table to enable notifications again?

Welcome to the forum.
See if this works. Settings>System>Notifications>Notifications from Apps and other Senders
Find your app in the list and toggle it ON.
If your app is not in the list or if that doesn't work, as a last resort you should be able to use an uninstaller like Revo to uninstall it, making sure to remove all leftover files and registry entries. Reboot and reinstall the app again. However, you would have to set up again any personalized settings you might have had in the app.

I have tried that and revo removed it. It appears to be a system change that can never be changed again.

There is a long and short answer that may suit your needs.

The long answer is to modify the powershell script from the accepted answer in this thread Enforcing notifications from specific applications to be enabled , Change the two occurrences of 'powershell.exe' to the name of your Beeper exe.

The short answer is to create a new user profile and see if that solves the issue.
