    Thanks. That's a helluva lot faster. Who knows long I would have gone before finding that option.

    You're welcome.
    Just so know what I've learned from this thread. MS does have this for us. They put it in the ribbon at top of every page.
    That file I told you about just Merges the ribbon command to the context menu.

    it's not ideal but it's something. the problem with it is it needs the apps to recognize and hook into it. which means all the apps out there don't support it. it'll be like this until there's an official first-party notification center from Microsoft.

    Thanks. Downloading it now.
    Any clue what the unification time setting mean on W8?


    EDIT: Unification is asking for my Outlook username/password. Not sure why its asking for that when I am looking for notifications for the apps on my computer.
