Hi Shaun, is there any fool proof way to disable and remove widgets ? I have tried all the online fixes (regedit) - there is no response to Win+W - but they remain. My build info is in my profile - i am not a tech expert, and do not enjoy Windows "pushing" data, news on to my or my staff desktops. Ditto for co-pilot and AI - much as I try to uninstall it, MS hides it and it is not disabled despite following fora suggestions - i have tried them all.

Hello, and welcome. :alien:

You can use the method in the tutorial below to completely disable the Widgets feature, but it doesn't uninstall it like the second tutorial below.
