How to remove news feed from Microsoft Edge?

The news feed in Microsoft Edge can often be distracting and lead to a lot of mindless browsing. Sometimes the news articles doesn't even seem interesting enough to spend time on and they make the homepage of Edge browser look cluttered.

So the solution is to disable the news feed in Edge. Here's how to do it - 

Step 1. Click the settings icon to open the context menu.

2. Select Custom

3. Under Content, you can see the "Headings only" option selected as default. 

4. Click on it to open the dropdown menu. 

5. Select Content off.

This will turn off the news feed of Microsoft Edge and you will no longer see the news feed in the new tab page if you keep it turned off. 

If you ever want to change the settings and want to bring back the all the news, just change it to "Content visible" if you want the full news feed or "Headings only" if you want just the headings to display.


  1. Thanks! it really helped thank you.

  2. thankyou so much! I'm tired of seeing news everywhere I look pushing agendas and fear, and I wanted to get rid of everything period.

  3. It won't work for me because my settings button has completely disappeared from my home screen, including most of my screen as it has been taken over by the news feed.

    1. Can you post a screenshot of the home screen? I just tried turning on the news but the settings button stays visible for me. It could also be due to an extension.

    2. Sure! I don't know how to send a screenshot though.

    3. I have it saved, but I don't know how to send it.

    4. You can upload the screenshots to the website called and share the link.

  4. Thanks it helped me a lot
