    Notification Box has minus sign

    Just noticed my notification icon has changed and now has a little minus sign in the bottom right corner of it. What does this mean?

    I have most app notifications set to "on" only mail and onedrive are selected to be off.

    The little minus means that Quiet Hours are turned on

    If just clicking on it doesn't remove it, try right clicking the icon, turn quiet hours on, then turn it off again

    Have occasionally seen it where it sticks and thinks that Quiet Hours are enabled

    Since the recent update it now appears with the minus sign on start up. OK, yes turn it one and off again fixes it, BUT only for this session. anyone reporting this to M/s?
