    Do you have Home or Pro version? Group policies are not supported in the Home version.

    winver will tell you which version you have.

    Win 10 pro Upgraded from 8.1

    upgrade to pro, gpedit has only been available to pro and enterprise ver since at least win 7

    on a goggle search I see some workarounds for 7 and 8 perhaps one of those would work for you? I can't personally say and I have had pro for many years.

    In order to get gpedit.msc you have to upgrade to Pro. Not sure why you need a group policy to activate Action Center:

    Did you try Windows key+A, that doesn't bring the charms back for me. I have them all turned off using Classic Shell
