The Notification Center is placed on the system tray, next to Action Center, and power option. The idea behind the Notification Center is to keep you posted with everything that is happening on your system. For instance, the Notification Center tells you when you ve connected an external storage device to the system. Furthermore, the hub also populates notifications from other apps, including Skype.

The other point worth noting is that as your notification starts piling up, the Notification Center allows you to scroll through them. You also get an option to quickly dismiss a notification, as well reject all at once.
It s worth mentioning that Notification Center feature has been available on Mac operating system for quite some time. It has also been available on mobile platforms, and interestedly enough, Windows Phone added this feature recently with Windows Phone 8.1 update.
Microsoft is expected to unveil Windows 9 at an event on either September 30, or early October. The company might also release a Technical Preview of the operating system at the same event. Codenamed Windows Threshold, Windows 9 is expected to release next year. Earlier this week we also got a glimpse of the Start button, which will make its comeback in Windows 9 after being removed from Windows 8 last year.
