Action Center

In the Windows 10 operating system, Action Center stores and displays notifications from software and applications running on your desktop computer or mobile device.

Customize the Action Center

To open the Action Center you can press the Windows key and A simultaneously on the keyboard or from a touchscreen device swipe inwards from the far right edge of the screen.
