Disable News and Interest using MEM (Intune)Learn how to disable News and Interest using MEM (Intune)

On the last version of Windows (20H2) every user received a “nice” feature, which is located on the Taskbar. It’s called News and Interest.

For me is not necessary and I can right-click on my taskbar and disable it. But for most organizations, that option should be configured by IT Admins.

You can use it for that GPO settings, but I will use MEM - Microsoft Endpoint Manager (the old name: Intune)

To disable this setting, create a new Settings catalog and select the News and Interest section.

Enable it or disable it by default for all users.

After that, assign to a group of devices.

On the next reboot (or resetting explorer.exe process) that option will be gone.
