Welcome to our series of tutorials on the Microsoft Windows 10 that help you understand the features of the upcoming Windows 10.

This tutorial will help you show how to open and use Action Center.

What is Action Center?

If you don’t know already, Action Center in Windows 10 has been borrowed from Windows phone and just like in Windows phone, it collects and shows the notifications from system (PC) as well as the individual apps installed on your PC.

All these notifications are grouped by app and time.

All your notifications from Facebook, Email accounts, System alerts and more are visible in the Action Center. You can easily enable and disable alerts for apps as well.

You also get quick access to system settings like options to turn on / off or open / close items like Location, VPN, WiFi, Display Settings, All Settings, Volume, Internet Access, Bluetooth or any other item which you have selected to view in the Action Center.

Here are different ways in which you can access Action Center:

  1. Press the Windows + A keys
  2. Click on the Action Center system icon on the taskbar
  3. Right click on the Action Center system icon on the taskbar, and click on Open Action Center

To clear notifications, simply click on the on Clear All icon at the top right corner of the Action Center (as shown below in the image)


Note: You can also clear the notifications from a specific app by simply selecting that app and pressing the ‘Delete’ key or pressing X on the right of that app name.
