In the social tab under the options menu, there's a checkbox that reads Show Toast Windows, and then a duration for these toasts, what are they? how can I use them, and what are they for?

A Toast is what shows up whenever you earn an achievement. It flashes the achievement name across the bottom of the screen.

If you find them distracting, you can disable them with a menu option.

They are called toast windows as they traditionally popup from the bottom of the screen just like a toast would popup from the toaster when ready. – Andrew Moore Jul 5 '12 at 1:28
