You can add or remove information cards in News and Interests on Windows 10 in order to customize what the taskbar widget shows. This post will show you how it can be done. The News and Interests feature has become available to everyone since May 2021, with cumulative update for Windows 10. It allows the user to check the weather, read news headlines, follow traffic updates, stock information, and other relevant information without launching the browser.
The News and Interest feature exists in Windows 10 starting in build 21286. It adds a button to the taskbar that displays a small and brief weather forecast. By clicking on hovering the button you can open a flyout that reminds of what the new tab page contains in the Edge browser. Similar to the Edge page, it includes a news feed, weather forecast, and it also updates dynamically throughout the day.
Tip: See how to enable or disable it, or stop it from appearing when you hover over it with your mouse pointer. If the News and Interests feature is not available for your user account, you can try to force enable it manually.
Note: The News and Interests widget is only available on primary monitors and where the taskbar is aligned to the bottom of the screen.
Add or Remove Information Cards in News and Interests
- Open the News and Interests widget by clicking on it or hovering over the cursor.
