Windows 11: Here’s the new ‘Widgets’ panel with news, weather, etc

    What you need to know

    • Windows 11 has a new Widgets panel that slides out from the left.
    • It contains the same News & Interests content as on Windows 10.
    • Unfortunately, it’s not very customizable. At least not yet.

    Microsoft’s new Windows 11 operating system has a brand new “Widgets” panel pinned to the Taskbar by default. This Widgets panel is basically just the Windows 10 “News & Interests” taskbar, but housed in a slightly different user interface. It connects to the same MSN service and provides the same news, weather, sports and financial updates.

    The Widget panel can be accessed via the dedicated Widget button on the Taskbar, via swiping from the left side of the screen, or via the Win+W keyboard shortcut. The panel is on the left side and cannot be moved around or resized. Along the top of the panel is the current time, along with a drop-down menu to customize what types of topics and preferences show up inside the panel.
