    How to Add and Remove Information Cards for News and Interests in Windows 10


    News and interests on the taskbar provides easy access to information that’s important to you, without the distraction of switching between apps, websites, and other devices. View your location’s current weather conditions directly on your taskbar and hover over the icon to see concise, scannable information from sports and stocks to local news and breaking headlines.

    News and interests shows you content on a variety of topics. Each topic – top stories, weather, sports, stocks, and traffic – are contained within an information card and will update over time.

    Information cards for weather, money, sports, and traffic can be toggled on (add) or off (remove).

    Hi, I accidentally disabled the Weather card in N&Interests, leaving me with a taskbar icon

    I have Edgedeflector installed, and as per your tutorial, the ability to select cards is not shown in Firefox.

    I therefore copied the link you cite and opened it in Edge:

    This appeared to show the Weather card enabled (although it wasn't). I disabled it, enabled it again.. still no Weather.

    I found it then took some minutes for the taskbar icon to update.

    It might be worth pointing that out. Thanks!

    Hello @dalchina,

    Just to verify, did you refresh News and interests like in step 5 of option 2 after adding the weather card?

    No.. does that refresh the icon too?
    It was messy enough having to copy the link, open Edge, paste the link, find Edge said weather was enabled (when it wasn't) and then try toggling off and on. (And frustrating 'cos it insists on using Edge).

    By that time I felt I'd done enough .. I was content to wait.

    I'm not really interested in trying again, having been affected by the taskbar bug (now solved with the newest preview build, having come across two apparent bugs with Windows search (post read over 200 times, no response from anyone), and finally found that actually indexing most of C: makes Windows search work a whole lot more effectively!

    Refresh is suppose to force News and Interest to update to hopefully show your changes.
