Windows 10: Question About Action Center Icon Solved

    Question About Action Center Icon


    Hey,

    Every now and then my Action Bar Icon in the Task Bar will switch from the normal rectangle with lines inside to the same thing except now there is a small circle in the lower right hand corner. If I click it the Action Center comes up like it normally would. Just curious if anybody can tell me what this is supposed to signify. Thanks.

    The circle means Quiet Hours are enabled - no banners or sounds for notifications will play while that is active.

    Do you use them on a Windows Phone device? They may sync if you use Cortana.
