Windows "News and Interests" feature (sic)

Post by Voltaire2.0 »

Anyone else notice that Microsoft's latest Windows update foisted on us a "News and Interests" widget in the taskbar?

They choose the news and feeds.

Right click turns that thing off.

Didn't notice that, but have noticed that they've added Teams to the taskbar without my permission and every time there's an opportunity, they open Teams or a commercial for Teams, which I find extremely invasive and annoying.
