  1. Banishing "News and interests" makes "system tray"/"notification area" disappear


    Starting today, Windows 10 provided a new icon in the "system tray"/"notification area" ST/NA. It is for "news and interests" N&I.

    System Tray notification area oddity


    I've looked all over for an answer to this and I can't find it. Am I patient zero? If I have one icon showing in the notification area it appears just fine. If I turn in another icon to show on the notification area the new one shows and the fist one turns into a blank area. If I turn off the first icon the blank area disappears and the remaining icon moves over into its place. Likewise if I turn on all icons the one closest to the New Notifications icon is blank. I've tried resetting the notification area icons but noting changed. I am dazed and confused.
