    Anyone know what that circled bar is trying to tell me, there were no outstanding notifications in Action Centre pop-out. After a while I noticed it had it disappeared.

    As I'm writing this, I might have figured what it was. I might have responded to an alarm with 'go away and have a snooze for 10 minutes', so maybe it was telling me 'there is a pending alarm'. If that's what it was then it should have had something in the Action Centre pop-out to that effect.

    Bloody programmers, too much focus on the glitz and glamour, rather than on the bread and butter
