Microsoft Edge certainly isn’t a bad browser, but it has some annoyances, to put it mildly. That said, it’s also supremely customizable, if some of these options aren’t quite your taste. Today we’re going to look at one of these features that people either love, or hate: the news feed on new tabs and the home screen.

  1. Open Microsoft Edge.

    You can actually stop here if you’d like, but you’ll still see the news articles on new tabs. If you want to remove them, keep reading.
