    Don't have Weather widget on taskbar (21390. build)


    Hello,

    I have been searching for the solution of this problem for some time. Thought it may be up to location where I live. Seems like it wasn't that. I have been giving changing locations a try.

    I am registered on Insider's. My laptop is registered to Insider's as well. Laptop has the widget but PC doesn't!

    What could be the solution?

    Thank you in advance

    when you right click taskbar on desktop is
    news and interest feed shown

    It would be extremely helpful if you could be more detailed in your listing of what you have tried.
    Are the same installed updates shown on the desktop as on the laptop.

    Thank you for your answer!

    There is no option when I right click on the taskbar. It's like it doesn't exist at all!

    I don't think it has something to do with my Windows version since I think it's the latest. I am enrolled to Insider's build.

    I've tried reinstalling Windows so far, changing my language since some people said it's only exclusive to the USA and ran various "Windows Repair" repairs. Nothing helps.

    This should enable the option. Run CMD and copy/paste:
    Code:
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Feeds" /v "IsFeedsAvailable" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f
    Other options:
    Code:
    rem News and Interests / 0 - Show icon and text (default) / 1 - Show icon only / 2 - Turn off
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Feeds" /v "ShellFeedsTaskbarViewMode" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    
    rem News and Interests Reduce taskbar updates / 0 - No / 1 - Yes
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Feeds" /v "ShellFeedsTaskbarContentUpdateMode" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    
    rem News and Interests Open on hover / 0 - No / 1 - Yes
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Feeds" /v "ShellFeedsTaskbarOpenOnHover" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f

    @TairikuOkami

    You should also provide the undo, just in case users come to realize how useless and annoying the feature is!
