I’m using Outlook on Windows 10 and whenever I receive a new email I do get the notification toast but when I open the Action Center, the message isn’t listed there.
Can I add Outlook’s notifications to the Action Center as well so I can quickly see if I received any new emails while I was away from my computer?
Outlook 2013 and Outlook 2016 make use of Windows 10’s Notifications system but by default, these Notifications aren’t being added to the Action Center.
It is however really easy to configure the Action Center to also collect Outlook’s Notifications so you can quickly see which Notifications you’ve missed. Aside from new email alerts, these notifications also include reminders for appointments, meetings and tasks.
To enable this, you can use the Windows 10 Settings app;
- Go to: Start-> Settings-> System-> Notifications & Actions
- Click on Outlook 2013 or Outlook 2016
- Verify that Notifications is set to On.
- Set Show in action center to On.
Outlook’s Notifications can also be shown in Windows 10’s Actions Center.
