First off, don't waste your time writing the messages down. Just hit alt+PrtScn, which will copy a screenshot of the message to the clipboard, then paste it into Paint or some other location.
Second, it is probably not possible to change the behavior of the alerts in Windows. By design of the function, they don't have a minimizing feature. They can only be active (in focus) or inactive (no focus/behind an active screen). When they pop up, you've either got to let them continue existing, or close them.
