    One little thing I don't like about the notification centre is the wifi button, it's great that wifi turns on when you press it, but you should be able to turn it off when you press it too and not be taken to settings.

    While it's not as straightforward, it's closer to the paradigm Windows 8.x has.

    Are you swiping using two fingers? Doing that will clear all notifications.

    Even though I swipe with one finger all my notifications are cleared.

    One finger swipe clears the notifications of ONE app only.

    Two fingers swipe - multiple apps notifications (i.e. everything).

    No.. Its actually helpful! Atleast i find it! Because when you find a new network which is secured, it takes you to settings so that you can connect it!

    I want to clear a single notification from a single app. For example clearing one email from outlook without clearing the four other emails.

    Open it from the notification center.

    Lets be honest here. It's a toggle; which means it should turn that function on and off. Not bring you to the settings menu to then turn it off. Seriously how much sense does that make?

    It would have been better to have long press to activate settings

    As much sense of having games in the app list suddenly. I'm not sure why MS choose to have it go to the settings page but they probably have some weird reason why.

    I believe that they did it for 'discoverability' of those games apps. Which I guess makes sense but I hate it with a passion. They want to make WP as similar as the competing OS's so that when people switch it isn't a jarring experience. I hate all of what I just said...

    It's actually pretty interesting that in the majority of the concept videos that I watched the designers allowed access of the quick toggles and notification panel by swiping left to right. Kinda wished I suggested it to Joe bellifore on his reddit AMA

    Microsoft has said that having the notification center on the left would interfere with other apps like how you swipe left to right in IE 11 to go back or forward.

    It is still possible I've seen Android apps that allow you to long press and swipe to access specific areas of that app. They even allow the user to choose the height of the swipe area along with the distance from the edge. That's a cheap answer from Microsoft.

    It could've been in a swipe in from the edge. Oh well.
