Microsoft Edge Introduces a New MSN Homepage
Microsoft is launching an overhaul of its MSN portal, which will include a new news feed on the Start page in Edge. It will display stories from around the world and in your local area.
Some of these stories are from reputable publishers, but others are tabloid trash. Many users have complained that this content is intrusive and should be removed from the Start page in Edge.
Microsoft is introducing a new personalized news feed that will be available on the Windows desktop, iOS and Android. The software giant is calling the new product Microsoft Start, and it aims to offer users a variety of different topics, including sports, weather, entertainment, lifestyle and money. The company is also using AI to curate the news based on your interests and settings.
The service will include news from local sources, and it will be tailored to your location. It will also show you news stories in the language that is default for your region.
You can customize the newsfeed by clicking on the more icon in the top-right corner of the page and selecting one of three options. Focused disables Bing’s image of the day, shows greetings, and limits content to headings only. Inspirational enables the image of the day and makes content partially visible on the page. You can also configure the layout of your page by changing the background image and other settings.
MSN offers a wide variety of features on its homepage that can help users find the news and information they’re looking for. These features include videos, sports, entertainment, and more. Users can also use the customizable feature to create a homepage that suits their personal needs.
In order to customize the homepage, users must first open Edge and click on the gear icon to access settings. They can then choose one of the following options:
Focused – offers a clean-looking page free of clutter and quick links to your most frequently visited websites. Inspirational – similar to Focused, but with a daily background image and news that’s tailored to your interests as you scroll down the page.
Custom – allows you to choose from all of the different page elements and create a unique layout that speaks to your individual tastes. However, this option may not be ideal for all users since it can be overwhelming.
The default Microsoft Edge home page includes a Bing search bar, image of the day, frequently visited websites and a news feed. It also features a dedicated home button. The homepage can be customized to suit personal preferences.
The browser is designed to keep users connected and up-to-date on the latest news, lifestyle, finance, sports, technology, health and local weather updates. It also provides access to Outlook email, Hotmail and Skype services.
You can customize the home page in three ways: Focused, Inspirational and Custom. Each option has its own unique set of features. For example, the Focused option disables MSN news and removes the image of the day. It also disables quick links and top site tiles from the new tab page.
The news feed is a great feature, but it can be distracting and overwhelming. It would be helpful if there was an option to completely disable it. This will help you stay focused on work, study and other tasks.
Edge can’t read some websites that require older technologies like ActiveX, Java, and Silverlight. It will display a message asking you to open the site with Internet Explorer or continue with Edge and face potential loading issues. You can change this behavior by selecting the “Open with Internet Explorer” option in the settings menu.
You can also disable or hide news feed content in Edge by choosing a custom mode and selecting the “Content Off” setting. Keep in mind that this will prevent the news feed from appearing on your start page and may impact other features of Edge.
If you’re experiencing a problem with Edge, try restarting your computer and trying again. You can also search for System Restore in your taskbar to find a previous version of Windows 10 that may fix the issue. If that doesn’t work, you can always contact Microsoft support for more assistance. The MSN website can be slow to load and refresh, but it’s worth the wait if you want to stay up to date on world news.
