Windows 10’s News and Interests feature was first announced in January and it started rolling out to consumers in April. The idea is to relevant information about what’s happening in the world with Microsoft News (MSN) integration. In addition to MSN feed, News and Interests is also capable of showing local weather, finance widget, etc.

If it feels like another piece of bloat and you don’t want and wish it could go away, you can now easily customize the feed and turn off the “hover” feature or disable the feed entirely.

Windows 10 Build 19043.1052 improves the news and interests hover experience and it will no longer launch on its own. You can now also open the taskbar menu (right-click anywhere on the blank area) and select the “Open on hover” option on the News and interests menu to turn off the hover effect.

In addition to News and Interests, Windows 10’s June update also addresses an issue that might prevent users from opening apps pinned to the taskbar using Microsoft Your Phone app.
