    NO Action Center Icon after trying both Tutorial options


    I have completed both Option 1 and Option 2 in the tutorial "How to Enable or Disable the Action Center in Windows 10". I rebooted after each option. I am attempting to enable the Action Center on my non-TouchScreen Lenovo WinBook but my Lenovo continues to have no Action Center icon. I have scanned and have clean system per Malwarebytes Premium. Windows Resource Protection found no integrity violations. Currently I have Windows 10 Pro Education; Version 1607; Build 14393.351

    Suggestions please?
    Thank you!

    Hello yrralrellim,

    Double check to make sure that you also have the Action Center icon turned on in your system icons settings.

    Thank you. When I started messing with this (trying to get the Action Center), my icon could not be turned on. It was off and "greyed out". Now I can't even find the setting to see if it is greyed out or not -- it seems to have totally disappeared. (I'm having no trouble with the Action Center on my other three Win10 PC's.)

    OK. Now I did. Now I have the icon! What a D.A. I was being. My "hurry up" mind kept taking me to Settings> System (because it had notifications" showing) instead of Settings. Personalization, etc. Thanks so much. I will mark as "Solved". Best regards. I probably couldn't exist and keep my mind straight on Windows 10 without this top notch, #1, Windows 10 forum.
