The biggest update to the Windows 10 taskbar in recent memory. It has a widget with a weather forecast and news
According to the source, Microsoft has begun to distribute a new feature in Windows 10, which is a notable innovation of the Windows 10 taskbar. This feature is a small widget located next to the notification area and displays the weather forecast directly on the panel. And by clicking on it, news opens. The widget was included in the cumulative April update of Windows 10, but due to the phased release of updates, it will be installed on the PCs of most users in May.
By clicking on the widget, not only news can be displayed, but also stock quotes or the results of sporting events – all this can be flexibly configured in accordance with the interests of the user. If there is no desire to read the news, then the widget can be turned off or, for example, left just as a weather informer.
Microsoft has been testing the widget since January this year and was expected to hit the system with a major fall update, but the company did it faster. The feature works on Windows 10 version 1909 and above.
