Introducing Widget notifications in Windows 11


  • Staff
Windows 11 is bringing you more live content on your taskbar. This change allows you to see live updates from other widgets such as sports, finance, and breaking news. Your taskbar should show weather most of the time, but when something important happens related to one of your other widgets you may see an announcement from that widget on your taskbar.

To get this updated feature, you should update the Windows Web Experience Pack from the Microsoft Store. This occurs automatically for most devices.

These announcements are meant to be quick and glanceable, and if you don’t interact with them, the taskbar will return to showing you the weather. Explore the changes in Stay up to date with widgets.

Note: If you have the latest version of Windows but still don’t see all widgets features, it may be because some features are being rolled out over several weeks and aren't available to all customers at once.
