How to open and customize action center in Windows 11

Action Center has been modified by almost all versions of Windows. On Windows 7, it was accessed through the Control Panel. On Windows 10, it was added as a panel that opened on the right side of the screen with helpful toggles. On Windows 11, it has changed again. The image that appeared at the right end of the taskbar is gone and since it is gone, there does not seem to be a way to open an Action Center.
