Action Centre

All the former Charms functions are contained in a new Notifications panel, called Action Center. When you launch Action Center, a full-height bar appears on the right of the screen – it’s designed to match the Notifications setup in Windows Phone. Most of these functions are standard to us from iOS and Android; features such as toggling Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or Location on and off, but it’s great to have.

In the Action Center see notifications from the system and apps – from new emails and invites to IMs, Facebook posts and more – all in one place, so you don’t miss a thing. In the previous Windows operating systems, there wasn’t a central location to view or manage your notifications. The new notification center provides you with a single location for all your app alerts.
