    Microsoft wants your feedback on improving the Action Center icon

    Microsoft is trying out a new way to gain feedback from Windows 10 users by using a new sort of online quest for them to complete.
    In it, they present two potential ideas for a new look for Windows 10ís notifications. Both feature a slightly new location on the far right of the Taskbar (which looks pretty good) but the main difference is the appearance of new icons which define which app the notifications are for. For example, when an Xbox notification is present, and Xbox icon will be used and when a Facebook notification is awaiting an action, a Facebook icon will be used.

    I like the idea of it showing the app icon on a desktop, position of it I am ok either way

    On a small tablet its ok as it is, its too small to be usable anyway

    not easy to fill in their little survey on it as the results vary depending on the device I use

    Good idea, as long as you still have the option to turn Action Center off.

    Windows 10 Anniversary Update 64-bit

    I like these, aestethics are nice, but I would like better reliability aswell. For some reason the Action Center doesn't work correctly for me. Half of the time it doesn't notify me of a receiving E-mail, and sometimes the bluetooth tab gets active even if I don't use or have bluetooth.

    I rarely use Action Center.
    But the" icon" idea sounds good.
