Windows 10 Action Center

Microsoft is currently working on its next major update codenamed “19H1” which is expected to come with new features and improvements for the Action Center, Settings page and more.

According to new reports, the company is currently testing some much-needed improvements for its Action Center which could be shipped with the next preview build.

The current Action Center in Windows 10 has very limited quick actions like location tracking, Airplane Mode etc. The company is currently testing a new feature which will allow Windows 10 users to create their own quick actions.

The new feature will be coming with its own button allowing users to enable and disable them directly from the Action Center. Microsoft is also expected to unlock the new feature to its developers helping them to add their own quick actions.

“You will soon be able to create Quick Action buttons (in Notification Center) for your Microsoft Flow actions,” Albacore revealed in a tweet.

It looks like the custom quick actions will use Microsoft Flow to execute the tasks. Microsoft Flow allows users to create and automate workflows across multiple apps and its integration into Windows 10’s Action Center will open various possibilities.

Setting page changes

Microsoft is also working on bringing changes to its Settings app and the latest leak provided a glimpse of the Settings app’s new header.

The Settings app is expected to come with a header placed at the top of the screen. The header will have user account bubble and link to access the Microsoft Account page.

Settings page

The Settings page would also be coming with shortcuts to the most used Settings. In addition to user account bubble, some more new features like an icon for Microsoft Reward is also in the work to let users know the number of points available.

Windows 10’s Spring 2019 update is likely to land in April 2019 and it will come with a long list of new features including the light theme. As the holiday is around the corners, the other major changes and improvements could be unveiled in January.
