How To Fix Reminders Not Updating In Notification Center on macOS Serria

It can be so annoying when things just don't work as they should. It can be even more frustrating trying to fix those problems - because you shouldn't have to right?! Technology should just work. Didn't that used to be one of Apple's mottos? That it'll just work?

Anyway, today we're fixing Reminders in Notification Center! Have you ever experienced Reminders failing to update? An old reminder showing and you just can't seem to remove or mark its as complete? Dumb, right? Well it apparently happens. Even removing the Reminders widgets and replacing it, doesn't make the app refresh. Or it seems disabling and re-enabling Reminders in iCloud. So what should you do?

Restart Notification Center.

You'll need to restart the whole Notification Center process in macOS.  This tutorial is made for macOS Serria, however, it's the same for Mac OS X Yosemite and El Capitan.

How To Restart Notification Center:

*Note this may move around your widgets in Notification Center, but it's not a big deal, you can just re-arrange them.

1. Open "Activity Monitor". You can find this in Launchpad, or more easily, press 'Command' and the 'Spacebar' keys, then type into Spotlight, "Activity Monitor" and then hit the 'return' key.

2. Then, using the Search Bar on the app, type "Notification". Click the process, "Notification Center".

3. Now click the "X" in the stop sign button on the top left corner.

4. Confirm that you want to quit the process.

This will force Notification Center to launch. This should force all the widgets to refresh and fix Reminders, and any other app that was failing to update.
