  Instructions for clearing notifications not accurate

Status in ubuntu-docs package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  This bug is about this page


  under the heading "The notification list", and specifically the text
  "Click the Clear List button to empty the list of notifications."

  From the text of the page I infer that "clear list" button would
  somehow be visible if I press Super+V or possibly click on a
  notification after I press Super+V. In 23.04 there is no "Clear List"
  button in either of those places. So that very specifically seems

  More generally the concern here is that I can't find functionality to
  clear either one notification or all of them. They just seem to pile
  up. Normal OS functionality in 2023 is to distinguish between
  "notifications the user has dismissed" and "notifications the user
  still needs to deal with" and I don't see that in Ubuntu. I can't tell
  if I'm missing something, or Ubuntu is just missing that
  functionality. I would hope the "Notifications and the notification
  list" page would inform me more on which is the case.
