In Windows 10 21H1, how do I remove the weather report in the task bar?

Windows 10 version 21H1 added a weather report to the task bar, next to the system tray area.

Since I can just look out the window instead and get accurate, up-to-the-second weather information, I am completely uninterested in this useless-to-me waste of screen real estate. However, I can't seem to find any way to remove it.

How do I remove the weather report item from the task bar?

The real question is how Microsoft knows where your computer is located so that they can give you weather reports... Anyone remember telling Microsoft that information? Now when you install Windows 10 you could do default install or custom install. Custom install basically meaning turning off massive amounts of pre-installed spyware. Lundin‭ 16 days ago

@Lundin What location information is used (and how it is derived) by Windows to select which weather to show certainly sounds like a worthwhile separate question to ask. Canina‭ 16 days ago

Follow following steps :

  1. Right-click on the taskbar.
  2. Go down to the "News and interests" option
  3. In the small menu that pops up to the side click the "Turn Off" option.

Umm... okay... I would not call that particularly obvious nor intuitive, but it worked for me. Thank you! Canina‭ 20 days ago
