The Action Center is a centralized location to view important messages about security and maintenance for your computer




To access the Action Center right click on the flag icon near the clock actioncenter_flag2_win8 and choose Open Action Center or choose System and Security > Action Center from the Control Panel



The Action Center is divided up into four main areas (covered in more detail in the sections below)




If any issues are detected you will see the action center icon near the clock change and display a red cross




And you will also see the notification of the problem detected pop up in the bottom right corner as shown below



Opening the Action Center will then show any alerts which are colour coded depending on severity




Red for urgent issues that need to be resolved as soon as possible such as virus software disabled or out of date




Yellow for informational alerts that need addressing but are not so critical such as reporting problems
