Possible to close a notification or make it show in another location on my screen?

    Hi guys,

    I like having notifications active on my Mac but sometimes they come in at a bad time. When I have to use the upper right corner to change tab, open new tab or something like that, and a notification come in, it's super annoying having to wait until it disappears.

    On my iPhone/iPad I can just quickly touch the notification to slide it down and then back up, and it'll be gone.

    Is it possible to either close a notification quick or have the notification show up somewhere else on the screen, such as the lower left corner for instance?

    Thanks in advance!

    Not sure about having it show elsewhere on the screen, but to quickly get rid of a Notification, you can either tap Close on it, or right-click and drag it off the screen, much like swiping in iOS.

    Oh really, that's cool about the swiping. I guess I had only tried left clicking and dragging it. Now I'm looking forward to the next notification to test this :)
