This tutorial explains how to hide Action Center in Windows 10.

Windows 10 Action Center shows new notifications for Mail, Calendar, and other applications. It is easy to turn off notifications for apps in Action Center. However, if you don’t use Action Center, then you can simply hide/turn off Action Center in Windows 10. It can be done by following some simple steps that I have covered in this tutorial.

Once you have done that, Action Center as well as its system tray icon will be removed from their places. Even the hotkey (Win+A) won’t be able to launch Action Center. In case, you need to get back Action Center, it can also be done anytime.
