Definitely not a good time to update to Windows 10 1809 apart from file deletion issue, we’ve reported Immersive Context Menus can’t be disabled, but changes to background Apps settings will now stick after the restart in this version. Something good and bad to say about new Windows 10 October 2018 Update. Another issue popped up where Action Center has stopped showing notifications when background apps are turned off. The bug is reproducible and a thread on Reddit users having this issue confirms this, how this escaped through insider builds and got into the public build is something Microsoft has to answer. The issue can be fixed by enabling background apps.
Fix Action Center doesn’t show notifications in Windows 10 version 1809
- Visit Settings > Privacy
- App Permissions > Background Apps, Toggle ‘Let apps run in the background’ switch to off
- Restart computer, action center doesn’t show any previously showed or new notifications
- Turn on the switch in the second step
- Restart Windows, Action Center will show notifications without any issues.
What this means is background apps need to be running for notifications to be shown in Windows 10 1809, isn’t notifications displayed before even when background apps were disabled in earlier versions of Windows 10?
