    Microsoft News in the Systray


    Microsoft News in the SysTray after a restart (not update associated restart) ... where did this come from????- no News app installed in Start menu- no "News" processes running- no listing in the Task Manager > Startup options- no options on right-click to close/shutdown- nothing in Settings > Taskbar icons/optionsI suspect it's Edge associated (??) but Edge is not my default browser and rarely used. How to get rid of ..... !!! Edition Windows 10 ProVersion 20H2Installed on ‎4/‎01/‎2021OS build 19042.964Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.2020.0

    ActiveSync no longer in SysTray

    I now have one remaining issue. ActiveSync does not open automatically when I connect my phone via USB. This is despite the fact that I have a check in the box next to Open ActiveSync when my device connects (File/Connection Settings).



    My "Work around" is to open ActveSync manually and then close the window and ActiveSync shows up white in the SysTray. I then connect my device via USB and ActiveSync opens up and eventually Syncs my device.



    I can live with this but do you have any suggestions to avoid the step above?

  3. Edge Search Does Not Permit Change of Region


    I got these suggestions from the Microsoft Community forum.No. 1 worked for me:

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.
    We have reproduce the issue here and we are able to access non-regional search for google using Microsoft Edge.
    I would suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps.
    Step 1:
    Clear browsing data option of Microsoft Edge and check if you face the issue. To do so perform the steps below.

    1. Click on the More actions icon next to the feedback icon present on top right corner of the Project Spartan homepage.
    2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.
    Step 2:
    I suggest you to create a new user account and check if the issue occurs.

    1. Go to Settings.
    2. Choose Accounts and then select Family and other users.
    3. Select add someone else on this PC.
    4. Enter a user name and hit next.
    5. Click on Finish.
    6. Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.

    Systray icon always visible.

    Hi,



    Welcome to Microsoft Community and thank you for posting. We appreciate your interest in Windows 10.



    As this issue might be due to settings not refining, I suggest you to refer to the below steps and check:


    • Open the Task manager.
      Here’s a tip: Press CTRL+Shift+ESC.

    • Click File > Run New Task.

    • Make sure you have a check mark beside “Create this task with administrative privileges”.

    • Type CMD.

    • Type the following 4 commands at the CMD prompt:

    • dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    • sfc /scannow

    • powershell

    • Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$_.InstallLocation -like "*SystemApps*"} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
    6. Close the CMD window.


    Check to see if the issue is resolved. If not, restart the PC.



    Hope it helps. Kindly update the status of the issue, we will be happy to help you.
