The Action Center of Windows 10 is known as Quick Settings (Shortcut Keys: Windows + A) in Windows 11. You can open Quick Settings by clicking on a group of icons ( Wi-Fi / Ethernet, Volume, Battery) on the right side of the Taskbar.

The Quick Settings hosts commonly used settings like Volume, Brightness, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Airplane mode, Rotation lock, Battery saver, Accessibility, Night light, Mobile hotspot, Nearby sharing, Cast, etc. It is also possible to add, remove or arrange items on the Quick Settings menu simply by editing them. You can also reset Quick Settings if you messed up its settings. Above the Quick Settings, you will find media playback controls when playing music or videos in Microsoft Edge or streaming music in apps like Spotify.

Suppose you have made several changes to your Quick Settings menu and want to stop users from adding, removing, or arranging items. In that case, you can achieve it through two methods: using Local Group Policy Editor or Registry Editor.
