  1. New "News and Interests" in Taskbar - Disable/Hide News, Keep Weather?


    Is there any possible way to get rid of the news but just keep the weather card when I hover over the current local temperature on the new "News and Interests" feature built into the taskbar? I know I can disable the cards that show when I hover altogether, and I know I can disable the entire feature, either by right-clicking the taskbar and then disabling it or also through the Group Policy Editor or changing a registry string. But I want to get rid of the news and keep the weather. Is there a registry hack for this? Windows 10 Pro Education Version 21H1 (OS Build 19043.1023)

    :)

  2. how to effectively hide or disable the taskbar?

    Hi,



    Did you try the “Auto-hide the taskbar” option from Taskbar properties?



    If you have not tried it, I would suggest you to follow these steps and auto-hide the taskbar:

    • Right click on Taskbar.
    • Click on Properties
    • Check the box Auto-hide the taskbar.
    • Click on OK.


    Hope this information helps.

  3. News and Interests arrived from nowhere

    Thanks Try3, I will have a look. It can be simply turned off from taskbar - right click, News and interests, turn off. No need to disable. What I don't like is the weather icon in the notification area - just doesn't go well with others... MS should work a bit harder when is also about estethics in their operation system. My opinion...
