How to Enable News & Weather Widget On Microsoft Edge

One of the most outstanding features of the Android operating system is the widgets. You can easily add widgets on your Android’s home screen to stay updated with useful information such as weather, news, time & date, etc.

The Widget feature is missing on Windows operating system. Although in a recent Windows Insider Build, Microsoft added a new weather and news widget to Windows 10’s taskbar. But, you have to wait for a few more months to get the Widget feature on your PC.

Now it looks like Microsoft has also added a Widget feature on its Edge browser. The Microsoft Edge browser got a feature that shows the web widgets when you start your computer. The Widget is fully customizable.
