    As shown above, it's at least really easy to turn off. It showed up on my computer today too, but I don't mind it.

    Got rid of that.

    Now how do I get rid of the Search popup window Quick Search: Weather, Top News, Today in History, Coronavirus trends crap on that screen?

    Better yet, how can I keep 21H1 from ever showing things like those? (I never want to see those, ever, anywhere. )

    Why they added it, I have no idea. Windows already has a weather app and a news app.
