    Manage interests button not working in new News & Interests taskbar


    So I finally got around to messing with this after it was just pushed to my device a few days back. I clicked the manage interests button and it was opening my browser but I was unable to manage my interests anywhere I could see. Turns out you can only manage them if you use the Edge browser. Good ole microsoft... Either way, the odd part is that link was only opening in Brave for me when on my other pc it asks me where to open it and gives edge as the ONLY option I cant even choose brave if i wanted to. So maaaany moons ago i installed a small app called edgedeflector which redirects links to your default browser instead of forcing edge/bing. I surmised this was related and uninstalled it to test as it was evident I was going to have to open that particular link in edge or not have it available to use at all. Well after removing and restarting, its now a dead button. does nothing. I assume this is somehow somewhere set in the default apps/protocols/filetypes section but I have no idea what/where it would be listed as so i can assign it to something. Or a simple switch or registry string i can delete to simply reset the "widget?" would work all the same i imagine. Anyone got anything for me?

    :)

    News & Interests pops up then disappears

    Of my 6 machines only one has seen it appear so far. I'm in two minds whether to leave it turned on or not, but it seems to be working normally.


    You could try disabling 'open on hover' or even turning it off completely. Then turn it back on and see if then works properly.
