Windows 10 Insiders update brings a time-saving feature to the taskbar — Here’s how to get it


Windows 10 saw quite a few updates in 2020, including some handy new tools for power users just last month.  And there’s a major Windows 10 update is expected later this year with significant changes to the user interface. 

Well, this is not that update, but this new build that is available exclusively to Windows Insiders currently does perhaps give us some additional insight into what to expect from Windows 10 in 2021 (via SlashGear). 

News and Interests

The highlight addition to the new build is the “News and Interests” feature found in the taskbar. The idea is that this feed will deliver a selection of headlines, weather, sports, finance and the like to save you from needing to pull that information up on the web or on your smartphone or tablet. It’s a concept that mobile users will be familiar with as both Android and iOS now employ a similar feed as the left-most home screen.

If you see something in there that piques your interest you can click on it to get a reading view without the distractions of a full webpage. You can personalize the feed by clicking the options button in the upper-right corner and indicating either “more stories like this” or “fewer stories like this.” And if the whole idea sounds terrible to you then don’t worry it’s easy to turn it off by simply right-clicking on the taskbar.
