    New Windows 10 bug: News and Interests button may have blurry text


    Microsoft confirmed that the News and Interests button may be blurry on some devices on the Windows taskbar. The company added a new known issue to the health dashboard of the recently released Windows 10 version 21H1 operating system version.

    News and Interest is a controversial feature that was introduced recently, and appears to be rolled out still to all users of Windows 10 versions 2004, 20H2 and 21H1.

    It displays as a weather icon with or without text on the taskbar by default. A click opens a news widget that displays news, weather information, traffic updates and more. Some users of Windows 10 like the weather icon and the quick access to news, others were surprised by the sudden addition and searched for ways to disable the weather information in the Windows 10 taskbar.

    A right-click and the selection of News and Interests > Turn off, hides the weather widget on the taskbar.

    A recent entry to the health dashboard confirms that some users may have have blurry text on the taskbar that is related to the news and interests button.


    After installing KB5001391 or later updates, the news and interests button in the Windows taskbar might have blurry text on certain display configurations.

    Windows 10 versions 1909, 2004, 20H2 and 21H1 are listed as the affected platforms. A workaround or fix is not available yet, but Microsoft notes that it is working on a resolution. The number of users who are affected by this is unclear; we could not reproduce the issue on several systems running Windows 10, but received word from several users of this site who confirmed the issue on their end. A screenshot taken in February on an Insider machine shows how the issue can look like, however (see above for the screenshot).

    Closing words


    The issue is not critical, and most users can probably live with it until it gets fixed. Those who cannot can still turn off the widget to turn it on again once the issue has been fixed by Microsoft. Still, better testing might have prevented the issue from being included in updates for stable versions of the Windows 10 operating system.

    Now You: what is your opinion on the news and interests widget? Useful, or not?

  2. Blurry Text on Windows 10 with new computer & Monitor

    Hello, @curlyp and welcome to TenForums,

    Try Settings - System - Display - Advanced scaling settings - enter 125 - Apply, signout or restart and see how is it. For me it's working perfectly since Anniversary Update and the problem still exists in 2004. The blurry text was in Device Manager, Event Viewer, Disk Management and who knows where else... Hope it helps you.

    Blurry text in Windows 10

    Hi there,

    I have a big problem with blurry text in Windows 10.

    I have found that many other people have complaints about blurry text in this version of Windows.

    I have bought a new monitor, BENQ GW 2255 with full hd resolution, and expect text to be crystal clear in this new version of Windows as it is most important for reading, and my eyes, but that's not the case, text in this version is disaster.

    I have also tried a few tricks, that I have found on internet, disabling dpi scaling, some dpi scaling fixes etc. but it didn't work.

    Would you be so kind to reconsider this problem in your future updates, and to find some nice solution for blurry text problem in Windows 10?

    Apart of this, I do not have any other complaints, and I've been very satisfied with new Windows 10.

    Thanks in advance!
