Windows 10: Action centre/notifications not working following creator update.

  1.    16 Apr 2017 #1

    Action centre/notifications not working following creator update.

    Following the creator update nothing happens following a left click on the action centre notifications icon in the bottom right. A right click shows the menu or action centre but it doesn't open.

    Sometimes restarting the computer will sort this if it's just a glitch.

    I have restarted many times since this happened including the PC being off all night. I have run sfc /scannow and tried dism but that says it cant find the source file.

    Yeah, DISM is not working properly in the Creators Update right now.

    Does pressing Win+A open the action center for you as a workaround?

    No that doesn't open the Action Centre.

    In hopes of avoiding a clean install, you could see if doing a repair install may sort it for you.

    Yes might come to that. Will have to back up 2Tb HD twice before that so I may be some time.

    That fixed it thanks for everyone's help. Used media creation tool to do an update install without losing installed program.
