The Notification Center in Windows Phone 8.1 is the new central location for managing notifications missed while away form the phone. When you have numerous apps firing up notification alerts it can prove a task to go through and delete them all. Luckily, there's a "clear all" button, but Microsoft has also included a sweet little gesture which is just as convenient to mark everything as read and start fresh.

It's already possible to swipe away each individual notification using one finger, but did you know there's also a gesture to clear everything in the center? Simply swipe to the right (that's from left-to-right) with two fingers instead and everything disappears like magic. It's an easy way to quickly get in and out without messing around with a button to keep everything fluid in the new user experience.

That said, the option is always there, just in case you feel like going back to hitting visible elements. Let us know how you choose to effectively manage notifications on your Windows Phone.
