Notification Panel on Right Side of Screen Won't Go Away

When there is a notification and I click on the icon in the taskbar, the notification panel slides out from the right edge of the screen. After I clear the notification, the panel stays there and I won't go away. The only way I've found to get rid of it is to reboot.

I've turned off notifications so I don't get any. But if I click on the taskbar icon (the one at the right end of the bar) the panel slides out and never goes away.

I'm really new to Windows 10 and hoping there is an easy solution.

I see that every once in awhile and just clicking a blank area of the Taskbar closes it.

OK, but I'm seeing it all the time.

Perhaps I misled you. Although I'm new to Windows 10, I'm a long time user of Windows 7 and previous versions back to the very beginning, 1.0 I think it was. So I've tried left clicks and right clicks in the taskbar, the desktop, and in the panel itself. I've also tried clicks with various combos of shift, ctrl, alt, del, etc. All to no avail.

Have found and tried several solutions but none worked for me so I just turned off the whole thing using the Local Group Policy Editor.

Hi castingman,

well that is one way to deal with it, I assume you looked in Settings > System > Notifications & actions to see what you could do there?. :)

I did and couldn't solve the problem. But I noticed dialog boxes shown in some solutions were different than in my system. Example: the https://www.groovypost.com/howto/disable-action-center-windows-10/ site shows "Turn system icons on or off" a few lines under "Quick Actions" but my system shows "Edit your quick actions". My cursor changes to the pointing finger when I hover over this line of text but left or right clicking doesn't get any response. Not sure if this is good or bad!
