The company uses that flyout to push news on its services, even when users disable the news feed on the new tab page (NTP Settings > Content > Content Off).

Although many enjoy using Microsoft Edge for its speed and features, Microsoft often irritates users with unnecessary settings changes, prompts to switch the search engine, and attempts to promote other Microsoft's services. As a result, users often need to learn how to bypass all those annoyances. News notifications on the new tab page in Microsoft Edge is one of those scenarios.

Alexandra-R, Microsoft Edge Community Manager, posted a message on Reddit, notifying users that the New Tab Page team is aware of the problem. The settings button on the news notification flyout also does not work.

Developers are now investigating the issue and should fix it in no time. Meanwhile, a few clicks in the feed settings section will help you remove the notifications icon on the new tab page in Microsoft Edge.

  1. How can I automate this for every user, it’s rediculous that MS added this advertizing junk and makes it, I am sure on purpose, hard to remove. This should be off by default, users dont want junk being pushed at them when they have already turned these “features” off on previous updates and installations.

  2. I can’t see the ‘Notification’ section under ‘Personalise’ – I’m on Windows 10 21H2…
    Is anybody else finding the same thing?
