Windows 10's Action Center offers a convenient way to access a variety of PC options, but its default setup may not be right for you. Fortunately, it's easy to clean up Action Center, so it presents only the buttons you want, and in the order of your preference.
This tidying can prove useful, as users can place the Tablet Mode action easier to reach, or hide the Project button if they don't have a use for it. Here's how to customize the Action Center in Windows 10.
