37. Hide Action Center

side gif Recommended:  Free Scan To Fix and Optimize Your Windows PC

The Windows Action Center hold security, troubleshooting and system information for your computer. If any problems occur you are usually notified via a Message alert in your system notification area.

The message notifies you of a specific problem and gives you options to either fix it, if a suitable fix is available, or else send Microsoft further details of the problem being experienced.

Like most Alerts users can, and very often do, find them intrusive. For this reason an option has been included to, at least, turn the alerts off.

To turn of the Alerts proceed as follows:

  1. Click the UP arrow to the Left of the Notification area. In the small Window that appears, Click the Customize button. Fig: 37-1 Customize Screen
