    Change Height of Action Center??


    Does anyone know if the Action Center can be made shorter? I made a quick mock-up of what I am referring to...

    I know how to make it stay open, but I would rather just have it smaller... I don't care about the notifications, just the action buttons... thanks in advance.

    Are you talking about the tiles/action buttons specifically or the whole notification area?

    You can reduce the number of the tiles there......there should be an "expand" and "collapse" trigger above the tiles.

    The whole area, so that opening the Action Center only opens a little squared area with the tile buttons.

    I would like to see this too. Action Center should only open large enough vertically to show pending messages. No need to span the entire right side of the screen.

    I have not seen any way to control the AC size.

    Probably can't as there are other dependencies relying on that snappin.

    So, I know there is a reg tweak to keep it open until you manually close it. I have this tweak enabled, but is there a tweak to keep it behind all other windows? Currently that tweak keeps it open and on top of all others...

    No, there are portions of the Immersive UI that are independent of the Win32 environment at certain times; they act as a 'curtain'
    You'll notice this if you invoke a screensaver while the Start Menu and Action Center are open:
    (mouse movement will not kill the screensaver if you stay on the taskbar, menu, action center, etc.)
