Microsoft didn’t mention plans for a new notification center when it unveiled Windows 10 late last month, but it looks like the company may be planning to introduce the new feature later on. A quick hack from Twitter user @adeyblue lets you add the notification center for Microsoft’s new desktop OS.
You’ll need to download some extra code to get the notification center up and running. We wouldn’t recommend adding the patch to your own computer if you need to use it on a regular basis, though you probably shouldn’t be running Microsoft’s technical preview on your main PC to begin with. It’s also worth noting that the patch needs to be reloaded every time you want to access the notification center, so it’s not exactly convenient to use anyway.
Windows 10 will run on a variety of devices ranging from PC to smartphone, so it makes sense that notification center support is baked right in. It’s unclear if the desktop version of Microsoft’s new OS will offer this feature, though it’s definitely not out of the question. Apple already includes a notification center with Mac OS X, so why shouldn’t Windows do the same thing?
