If you installed the latest Windows 10 Preview build 14342, you’re now able to dismiss notifications from the Action Center by simply middle-clicking on them. This option is popular in some browsers, so Microsoft probably saw the potential in it and brought it to Windows 10.

“Action Center now supports the popular dismiss model of middle-clicking on a notification via the middle button scroll wheel on your mouse to a single notification. Middle-clicking on an app’s name will dismiss all the notifications listed for that app.”

With this new addition, a user can dismiss a single notification or dismiss all notifications related to a specific app at once by middle-clicking on the name of that app.

Although this is not a drastic change to the Action Center (like some changes in the previous builds) and while it probably won’t save you much time, it certainly refreshes the functionality of Windows 10’s Action Center.

Middle-click dismissal of Action Center notifications is available only to Windows Insiders for now, but it should be available for regular users with the Anniversary Update for Windows 10 this summer.
