A recent Windows 10 update has caused the weather and news widget to appear in the windows taskbar. This was quite annoying to see as I don’t really need to know the weather and clicking on the icon causes the news widget to appear. I wanted to hide this and found out an easy way to do this so I thought I’d share this with you all. Just follow these steps or follow the video below:
- Right click on the widget where it is displaying the weather icon and the temperature
- Hover your mouse over News and interest
- Click on turn off
- The news and weather widget will now be hidden. To unhide it just reverse the steps.
