  1. Win 10 20H2 19042.964 is now getting News and Interests.


    Today I got he News and Interests on every 20H2 machine at build 19042.964. Unfortunately it is coming with the annoying Hovering variant and no option to disable hovering. They added the option to uncheck hovering on development code, but they forgot the same option in the version coming down on public build. They picked the worst possible variant as the default, if I want to open N&I let me click on the icon like all the other icons on the taskbar. Whoever came up with this hovering nonsense was probably operating under the influence There were plenty of complaints on the FBH from insider testers about this crazy variant, why is MS ignoring the feed back ? You can see in the snapshot that the option to uncheck Open on Hover is missing. As a workaround to disable Open on Hover I changed the Feature Configuration manually from variant 6 to variant 4. Two feature configurations were added in build 19042.964 to activate news and interests: addconfig 27368843 2 1 0 0 0 4 ( FeedsCore ) addconfig 27371152 2 1 6 0 0 4 ( FeedsTaskbarHeadline ) (Default Open on Hover) The variant 6 in the second configuration is the default that Opens on Hover, changing it to 4 disables the hovering and you can click on the icon to open the flyout. This way it behave like all the other icons on the Taskbar and opens the flyout by clicking on the icon. addconfig 27371152 2 1 4 0 0 4 (No hovering variant)
