This little bell contains only the most recent notifications which after about 2 weeks(?) they all go away and the notification bell then shows nothing but a text message such as 'Notifications will appear here' on the flyout below it.
We however find the shortcuts to 'All Notifications' at the bottom of this flyout menu and the notification preferences icon at the top, rather handy. These links will only be seen when there are recent notifications so, is there a straightforward way to have these two links always show up?
Also, can one configure for how long these notifications are displayed under the notification bell?
I searched forum & docs but couldn't find this, kindly refer me to it if this is explained somewhere, thanks in advance.
