I think that that question is inclusive of the Action Center -i.e.. having it appear elsewhere when notifications are generated.

Am I understanding the question correctly?

With the bigger picture being that notifications pop-up at inconvenient/disruptive times....

There are controls available but I did not find anything that controls the Action Center's location per se.

[Note: I did find some links to move the icon from bottom to top (which is not the requirement per se) and those links involved registry edits. Not recommended and such changes are to be only a last resort.]

You may be able to find some "middle ground" by controlling the options that are available.

May be possible if you have a dual monitor system and use the left monitor for most work while the far right side of the right hand monitor is relegated to notifications etc...

Otherwise the option would be to hide notifications and then look at the summary as warranted thereafter.
