    New Notifications -- don't work!


    Like everyone else, I frequently get new Notifications in the latest build. So, I click on the icon in the system tray and open the panel. But, when I click on the notification in the panel, nothing happens. I've tried clicking, double-clicking, and right-clicking and still, nothing happens. I eventually click on the "X" and the notification goes away.

    Is this how it is supposed to work?

    I noticed that too! Here's what I'm seeing on my system.
    I get 'generic' notifications in white and black at the bottom of my screen, they're not clickable, I just clear them; notifications that seem to require initialization or attention pop up in color at the top of the screen, most of them are clickable to an action of some sort.
    Bear in mind, this is the buggiest build yet, anything can change at any time!

    I should clarify my previous post.
    When I say 'clickable'/'un-clickable', I meant the notifications that have retired to the notification panel, not the 'toasts' themselves in pop-up state.

    Hi there

    "Woz's the prob" !!!

    One click it appears. Click on screen again it disappears. Click on taskbar again TWO Times ??? it appears. Agreed slightly cackhanded way of working bit it DOES work. You have to click on the ICON TWICE if the notification screen has disappeared.

    Cheers

    YES ... and in my case, NONE of the notifications in that area are "clickable". Am asking if that is by design.

    I get a popup in the taskbar telling me I have new notifications, I click the icon in the taskbar, the Notifications area opens, I click the newest of the notifications there -- and nothing happens. Maybe, that's how it's supposed to work!
