Microsoft acknowledges the blurry News and Interests text issue on Windows 10

Windows 10 News and Interests widget

Earlier this year, Microsoft introduced News and Interests, a feature that allowed Windows 10 users to access weather, news, traffic updates and more directly from the taskbar. Just last month, Microsoft started rolling out the News and Interests feature to all the Windows 10 users.

However, soon after the update was released, users started complaining about the blurry text in News and Interests on the taskbar. Earlier today, Microsoft updated its Windows 10 Health Dashboard page to acknowledge the bug. The company wrote:

Certain display configurations might cause blurry text on the news and interests button in the Windows taskbar.

The company also noted that it is working on a fix which will be available in an "upcoming release". However, it did not specify the display configurations that are affected by the bug or when can users expect a patch.

In the meantime, users can navigate to Settings > System > Display and set the recommended Scale and Layout. Furthermore, they can also switch News and Interests to 'icon only' which will hide the text and will act as a temporary workaround for the problem. If you are not happy with the feature then you can follow our guide to turn off the News and Interests widget permanently.
