– To add widgets, select the ‘Add widgets’ button at the bottom of widgets board and follow the instructions to add widgets. 

 

– To personalise your news feed widgets, go to ‘Manage your news and interests’ in the Widget settings dialog box. This will open the ‘My Interests’ page in Microsoft Edge. 

 

– Use the search box to find topics or publishers you want to follow e.g., war in Ukraine. 

 

– To fine tune your news feed, select ‘Tune your feed’ on the left side of the ‘My Interests’ page to be guided through the steps to set up your news feed.
