  1. Action Center stopped working


    I have tried multiple solutions to it, like the sfc/scannow and the powershell solution, rebooting the pc. I have also tried deleting arial narrow which is just not letting me do.


    I also have no idea if it's related, but i am guessing it is, I can't get notifications for anything, not even for xbox game bar, which was working before, and just seemed to stop when action center did. Another problem I have is that everytime I try to acces Focus assist on windows settings, the app just crashes. I can't seem to open action center from another account in the same device or with winKey+A.


    Everytime I either try to open action center or go to focus assist on settings i get this on event viewer:


    Faulting application name: ShellExperienceHost.exe, version: 10.0.19041.610, time stamp: 0x5d4af3f4

    Faulting module name: KERNELBASE.dll, version: 10.0.19041.906, time stamp: 0x2f2f77bf

    Exception code: 0xc0000409

    Fault offset: 0x000000000010b2dc

    Faulting process id: 0x4120

    Faulting application start time: 0x01d7368e4bb44a69

    Faulting application path: C:\Windows\SystemApps\ShellExperienceHost_cw5n1h2txyewy\ShellExperienceHost.exe

    Faulting module path: C:\Windows\System32\KERNELBASE.dll

    Report Id: 5b5b9f11-abb4-4268-9e92-14ed2e7c3aea

    Faulting package full name: Microsoft.Windows.ShellExperienceHost_10.0.19041.610_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy

    Faulting package-relative application ID: App


    I don't know what kernellbase.dll means or what it's supposed to do, but that seems to be the problem. And from what i've been looking online, it's related to microsoft outlook, but since I have never even touched outlook on this pc, i have no idea what that means for me. I really am clueless and have been waititng for it to either solve itself or just an update to the OS to fix it, but nothing so far. Any help would be appreciated

    :)

    Action Center in Windows 10 frequently stops working

    I ran through your list to fix the same problem on my Windows 10 system. On mine the action center freezes each time a new message comes in. Also as a side note, all items you stop on give a note up above the icon. When hovering over the action center
    the new notification flag comes up over the action center icon and flashes to where it is very difficult to read the no new notifications or new notifications. When the icon is lit up and the new notifications flashes you can't get into action center and occasionally you
    can't get the start menu to work either and have to rely on a black pull down list that pops up only at that time. After going through all your steps my action center still does not work. I really don't want to back date my machine to last December 2015 as
    others have done from my current setup as of 7/20/16. Any help would be appreciated. I would have thought with this screwing up so many machines there would have been a fix on this by now in one of your many updates.

    Action Center stopped working

    Action Center stopped working after 1809

    So I just realized that I am not getting any notifications, I check with several programs and with Notifications Visualizer app from the store.
    The weirdest thing is that the speech bubble icon shows the notification count correctly but no notification sound or toast is displayed when the notification arrives and on top of that, after opening the action center itself, the notifications don't appear in the list, it's completely empty.

    I tried to create a new user and without even restarting the pc, I just logged off and switched account, the notifications work on the other account.

    Focus assist is disabled, I double checked.

    Do you happen to know any way to reset the action center?
    The event viewer lists:

    Toast with notification tracking id 46 is being delivered to 58300WindowsNotifications.NotificationsVisualizer_8rkfj2ay7vd1w!App on session 1.

    Start Toast Notification Forwarding activity

    Stop Toast Notification Forwarding activity



    58300WindowsNotifications.NotificationsVisualizer_8rkfj2ay7vd1w!App looks like an app, maybe reinstalling it could fix the issue?
