  1. Quick Actions on Action Center are not working


    I used to open the Action Center to control some features like: turning on Bluetooth or Night Mode, but suddenly it stopped working and all features are greyed out. On Settings menu, I can't select which Quick Actions I want because "Edit Quick Actions" doesn't open anything at all.


    I have already tried to change the Registry "PinnedQuickActionSlotCount" on Registry Editor, but still no results.


    Is there any way to debug it?

    Add or Remove Quick Actions in Action Center in Windows 10


    Hi,

    I wonder if there is a way to turn on/off certain Quick Actions icons in the Action Center via the registry, instead of doing it manually as described above.

    Before asking here I've wandered through some posts and searched the internet. I've noticed these keys:

    1/

    Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ActionCenter\Quick Actions\

    Here's a list of names of all the Quick Actions.

    2/

    Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ActionCenter\Quick Actions\UnpinnedByDefault

    Here's a list of names of Quick Actions that should be Unpinned by default. If I add some here (based on the names in the list described above) and reboot it doesn't seem to work.

    3/

    Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shell\ActionCenter\Quick Actions

    The value PinnedQuickActionSlotCount here is set at 4, which is the amount of Quick Actions seen by default without expanding the view in the Action Center. I don't need to change this one so I haven't tried it.

    4/

    Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Quick Actions\Pinned

    There seems to be a numbered list here of Pinned Quick Actions. The names are the same as in the list I mentioned in (1/). However if I remove some values here it also doesn't have effect (even after a reboot).

    ----

    Conclusion: I haven't found a thing that actually worked. Did anyone figure this out already?

    Thanks,

    Quick Actions in Actions Center are always disabled

    Hi,
    thanks for your proposal. I've tried both solutions in your link but none of them worked. Another hint I can provide is that after creating a new act it's quick action list in action center is empty even though in settings most of them are turned on.

    Regards

    Quick Actions on Action Center are not working

    Quick Actions in Actions Center are always disabled

    Hello,
    since a couple of days i'm struggling with the following issue - all of my quick actions in the actions center are disabled. I cannot click on them. Also actions center doesn't react to what I have checked in 'Actions and Notifications' settings. The list is constant, no matter what i check or uncheck in the settings.

    Also clicking on the WIFI icon in the task bar does nothing. Wifi menu on Desktop doesn't show up preventing me from switching networks (it works on locked screen though).

    I've tried 'sfc /scannow' but it didn't find any problems.

    Being so frustrated I almost ended up reinstalling my system, but I figured out that it might be sensible to leave the trace of this issue (couldn't find anything on the web).

    Thanks in advance
