This article explains showing or hiding feeds on the Widgets board in Windows 11.

The Widgets board is a new feature that provides quick access to news, weather, sports, and other information. It can be accessed by clicking the Widgets icon in the taskbar or pressing the Windows key + W shortcut. The board appears as a slide-out panel on the left side of the screen and can be customized to show or hide specific feeds.

Using the Widgets board, you can add or remove Phone Link, enable or disable the open Widgets board on hover, sign in or out of the Widgets board, reinstall Widgets features, completely uninstall Widgets, and more.

Microsoft is currently testing additional features in the Widgets board that will make it easier to show or hide feeds. This allows you to choose which feeds appear on your board.

This feature has not yet been released to Insider Preview users. As described in our previous post, you can enable it only by using ViVeTool.

Showing or hiding feeds in the Widgets board allows you to customize the information displayed on your screen. By selecting the most relevant feeds, you can quickly access the information you need without having to sift through irrelevant content.

This can help you save time and stay current on the topics that matter most. Also, hiding feeds you don’t need can help declutter your Widgets board and make navigating easier.
