In order to have desktop notifications fully functional you need to have them enabled in the browser settings. By enabling desktop notifications you will see a pop-up with the newest message from the site even if you are looking elsewhere.
Open the browser preferences and navigate to the "Notifications" section.
Locate the AskGamblers site in the list and select Allow.
Unfortunately, IE does not support the desktop notifications option. We recommend using some of the above-mentioned browsers for this purpose.
