    Windows 10 Action Centre not working

    I always keep Windows 10 up to date but I've recently noticed that the Action Centre has ceased to work. I click on the symbol in the extreme lower right hand corner of the screen and the box will not appear. A small menu appears but clicking on 'Open Action Centre' brings no results. Any ideas?
