The bottom end of the app houses the main settings. You can use to adjust your windows experience. Clicking on any of these bottom buttons will lead you straight to the options of that particular setting. The bottom end is simple enough. Things tend to get a little hairy when you try to make sense of the upper end.  All the notifications that are of importance for you are displayed here. Some users want to either turn off these notifications or prioritize them in a way that makes sense for their needs.

Make it simple

In order to make notifications less naggy, you can go to the “all settings” shortcut button and then go to System. There you will find a “Notifications and actions” menu you can use.

If you got here, just switch on or off the notifications you need or want. If this is still not enough for you, next time you open the Windows 10 Action Center just click the “X” sign that appears next to each individual notification and get rid of it.

Get to the bottom of things

Sometimes, the shortcut experience provided by the Windows 10 Action Center might just be far from fitting your needs. In this case, you can tinker with the shortcuts that the app displays on the bottom of the screen. Go to the “all settings” button on the action center and select “system” and “notifications and actions” again. Click “add or remove actions” and you will get to a menu allowing you to enable or disable quick actions.
