    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

    Windows toast notifications use Ctrl+Enter to perform the quick reply and use Enter to add a new line.
    Currently, uwp does not provide a way to change it.

    ToastButton.TextBoxId can get or set the ID of an existing ToastTextBox in order to have this button display to the right of the input, achieving a quick reply scenario.

    So, this quick reply function depends on you using ToastButton.TextBoxId to make the button behave as a quick reply button. You could set the same Id for the textbox and the button.

    For example(ToastButton.TextBoxId and ToastTextBox.Id in the code below are the same, both are "tbReply"):

      ToastActionsCustom actions = new ToastActionsCustom()  
                    Inputs =  
                        new ToastTextBox("tbReply")  
                            PlaceholderContent = "Type a response"  
                    Buttons =  
                        new ToastButton("Reply", new QueryString()  
                            { "action", "reply" },  
                            { "conversationId", conversationId.ToString() }  
                            ActivationType = ToastActivationType.Background,  
                            ImageUri = "Assets/Reply.png",  
                            // Reference the text box's ID in order to quick reply  
                           TextBoxId = "tbReply"
