@bob3160,

I'm going to install the feature update today.  Should I uninstall Classic Shell before installing Open Shell?

Since I don't use ClassicShell, I really can't answer the question.

I think you need to change the size of the notification box.
Here's what mine looks like.

For me the Notifications area when I click the tray icon takes up a whole column on the right side of the screen.  So there should be enough room to display 10s of different notifications, but I only have 8 ;)

The Collapse or Expand text should be above the notification panel tabs, you would usually click expand to see the brightness toggle.

Collapsed Mode only gives you the top 4 selections.

Since the tiles can be arranged, yours may differ from mine.
