Windows 10: Taskbar will have a weather / news widget

The Windows 10 taskbar will experience its first significant change with the arrival of a weather and news widget. It is available for testing for Windows Insider members today.

The weather and news widget appears on the right side of the Windows 10 taskbar, as shown in the image above. Local weather is displayed directly on the taskbar for preview. Clicking on it can give you more information, as well as a list of news. Microsoft specifies that each user can personalize the content displayed.

Microsoft states that the Weather / News widget displays the latest information in the Windows 10 taskbar. This can be important news, local news and more. Microsoft relies on 4,500 media / sites around the world to identify content. Each click on an article opens Microsoft Edge for reading.


The idea is for the widget to let you know. If you like something, you’ll be able to click “Show more articles like this”. Conversely, the “less articles like this” option will be available.

Windows 10 Weather and News Taskbar Widget is good, but what if you don’t want it? Microsoft says it will be possible to disable it.

As such, the facility is available for testing in the United States, Great Britain, Canada, Australia and India. Once available to all, it should reach France and elsewhere.
