    Thanks Shawn, registry method worked like a charm. Why in the heaven Microsoft keeps pushing bloatware and removing features from Windows 10 is beyond my comprehension, but luckily you're always there to assist us undoing MS mistakes, thanks.

    Hello therebel89, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    This appears to be an issue from the KB5003214 update.

    It should be fixed in the next update.

    Thank you so much, but I think that's a problem of the magicbook... I've spoken to other possessors, and it should be related to the presence of the PC manager icon next to the hour... I hope they can solve it asap, it's an interesting feature that i'd like to use...

    Hi!
    Thank you for the tutorial.
    I have Windows 10 Home Edition and only today I've updated it into version 20H2 and it came with this surprise in the task bar. I've tried the group policy but didn't work. But then, I noticed I could turn it off with the task bar context menu. To the ones still struggling with this, just use right mouse button on task bar, there's a "Microsoft News" section there, expand it to the right and you wil see several options, one just for hiding icon+text, other to disable it entirely etc.

    Greetings, I have a problem.
    After I made the UpDate for 21H1 the Local Group Policy Editor no longer displays the option News and interests in Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > News and interests in the left pane, News and interests disappeared and is not displayed in the bar Windows tasks.
    Can anyone help?

    Have you right clicked the Taskbar and... turned it ON?
    (bottom yellow dot shows how new icon may look)

    This option does not appear, the group policy editor disappeared with News and Interests, in the panel below Netmeeting there is no longer the option News and interests.

    Thanks I used the Group Policy editor to disable this.
    Kept me from having to search around looking for the key to removing what I never wanted in the first place.
    I HATE IT when Microsoft dumps new stuff on my desktop, taskbar or notification area without permission of warning. It is distracting, violates MY space and wastes my time to undo it.
    No wonder people don't like to keep up with Windows updates.
    You listening Microsoft???
