    Customize News & Interest


    On one of my laptops the news and interest feature has two columns of cards which I like, yet on another it's only one column. How can I get it to show two columns?

    Also is there a way to turn off AQI from the text on the taskbar without turning off the temperature?

    I figured it out. I need to change display text size to 100%. It was set to 110%. It now shows 2 columns.

    Can someone explain to me why manually changing the location have absolutely no effect most of the times? It always returns to its default detected location no matter what (I click on "Edit", enter my location then save... expect that it isn't saved at all). This occurred on several on our computers joined to a domain and running Windows 10 21H1 or 21H2. Machines are all brand new. I have no idea of the reason behind this behaviour. I'm also currently unable to find a proper answer with my usual search engine.
