Windows 10 Desktop Notifications

I'm trying to figure out how to create simple desktop notifications on my Windows 10 machine. I found notify-rust and winrt-notification on but the examples from the docs don't work on my machine - I don't get an error or anything like that, the program executes but nothing happens.

notify-rust example:

use notify_rust::Notification;
    .summary("Firefox News")
    .body("This will almost look like a real firefox notification.")

winrt_notification example:

extern crate winrt_notification;
use winrt_notification::{Duration, Sound, Toast};

fn main() {
        .title("Look at this flip!")
        .text1("(╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻")
        .expect("unable to toast");

Has anyone else had any luck with these, or am I missing something? I'm on Windows 10 home edition.
