WW 722: Everyone's Drinkin' at Home

Beep boop - this is a robot. A new show has been posted to TWiT…

What are your thoughts about today’s show? We’d love to hear from you!

I just got the new News and Interests taskbar feature. You can right click on the taskbar to disable it if you don’t like it. There is also a Group Policy to disable it for the entire PC. You can run gpedit.msc with elevation and it’s under

Local Computer Policy/
  Computer Configuration/
   Administrative Templates/
    Windows Components/
     News and interests

set Enable news and interests on the taskbar to Disabled

Here’s a picture of what it looked like before I gave it the axe.

Also note that disabling it in group policy removes it if active, and removes the entry in the pop-up menu that controls it.
