Disabling the News/Weather app in Windows 10

Modified on Fri, 30 Dec 2022 at 12:46 PM

You might have noticed a new addition to the Windows 10 Taskbar.

When clicked on, you get a news/weather pop-up.

Some might find this useful, but we have had requests to remove it.  Thankfully, it is pretty easy to remove.

Instructions to remove from the taskbar.

Right-Click on the Windows Task Bar in an area that is empty.  You will get a pop-up showing you the taskbar options.

Move you mouse to "News and interestes"  then click on "Turn off" when it shows to the side of the original pop-up.  That is it.
