It turns out that Microsoft has already figured out a fix as the latest Windows 10 Build 18267 (19H1) for Insiders has addressed the reported issues. It’s likely that Microsoft will backport the changes to Windows 10 October 2018 Update and address the reported issues with the November cumulative update.

In the changelog of Windows 10 Preview Build 18267, Microsoft confirmed a bug where the Action Center might appear on the opposite side of the screen before appearing on the correct side.
