How to Configure Windows 10’s Weather & News Taskbar Widget - How-To Geek
Jun 11, 2021 1 min, 32 secs

In June 2021, Microsoft enabled a News and Weather widget (called “News and Interests”) on Windows 10’s taskbar.

The News and Interests widget starts out with different panels of information called “cards” that are enabled by default.

The widget refreshes itself throughout the day, but if you ever want to refresh the card’s information manually, you can click the “Refresh” button (It looks like an arrow in a circle shape.) at the top of the widget window.

If you don’t want to see a certain widget card in particular, open the News widget and click the menu button (three dots in a circle) in the upper-right corner of the panel that you’d like to hide.

The Edge browser will open and load an “Experience Settings” page on an MSN.com website that controls the preferences for the Windows 10 news widget.

After you make changes, open the widget in the taskbar again and click the circular “Refresh” button at the top.

If you’d like to influence which news Microsoft pulls from the web to show on your News and Interests widget, open the widget (by clicking it in the taskbar) and select “Manage Interests” at the top of the widget window.

After selecting your interests, open the widget and click the reload button (a circular arrow) at the top of the window

If you don’t want to see the news widget on your Windows 10 taskbar, right-click the taskbar and select “News and Interests,” and then “Turn Off” in the menu that appears

In that same menu, you can also control options related to the widget, including selecting a smaller size for the widget in the taskbar (“Show Icon Only”) and making it so that you have to click the widget to open it (“Open on Hover”)
