Notification center will become more visible and useful in the upcoming builds of Windows 10
The beginning of this year was generous for the participants of the insider program, if we talk about the number of sent builds of Windows 10 Preview. However, most of them brought only internal changes, and only in recent versions we got something new in terms of functionality.
Still the main forces of developers of Windows 10 was abandoned to improve the overall OneCore kernel, and the implementation of new features has faded into the background. It seems that now the focus was shifted towards the introduction of functional changes. And one of these changes will affect the notification center.
The company wants to increase the usefulness of the Action Center icon on the taskbar of Windows 10. In particular, in future builds, Microsoft may revise the position of the icon of the notification center by moving it into the corner that he had not lost in a sea of other icons. In addition, the Action Center can receive the notification and will change the icon depending on the application, from which it is notified.
For clarity, the company has issued two concept, so we can understand what may happen in the end.
To hear all this feedback from users, the company has published a page with a survey, whose results will influence the choice of design options.
