Customize Your Taskbar Widget News Feed


Customize Your Taskbar Widget News Feed

If you’d like to influence which news Microsoft pulls from the web to show on your News and Interests widget, open the widget (by clicking it in the taskbar) and select “Manage Interests” at the top of the widget window.

In the Windows 10 news widget, click "Manage Interests."

A special web page will open in your browser that allows you to select or deselect interests by subject. Available interests include Science, TV, NBA, and more.

On the "Discover Interests" page, select the subjects you'd like to see news about in the Windows 10 News taskbar widget.

After selecting your interests, open the widget and click the reload button (a circular arrow) at the top of the window. You’ll see more news related to the subjects that you selected.

In the Windows 10 News Widget, click the reload button (which looks like an arrow bent into a circle).

If you don’t like certain news reports that you see in your news feed, you can hover over an individual news panel and click the “X” button in its upper-right corner.

The widget will then give you a choice between “Not interested in this story” (The widget will show fewer stories like this.), “Don’t like the source” (The widget will no longer show news from that publication.), or “Report an Issue” (where you can report offensive or misleading content).

If you don't like a news story, you can click the "X" and tell the widget why.

Alternately, you can make similar changes by clicking the menu button (three dots in a circle) in the lower-right corner of the individual news card. There, you can “like” or “dislike” a story, ask the widget to hide news from this source, and more.
