Windows 11 Widgets

With Windows 11, Microsoft introduced modern widgets. Widgets display dynamic content from apps and services on your Windows desktop. Widgets appear on the widgets board which can be opened from the left corner of your taskbar where you see the live weather icon.

With the recent update, Microsoft is introducing Widget notifications. With Widget notifications, you can see live updates from widgets such as sports, finance, and breaking news.

Until now, taskbar only had weather icon all the time. After this update, when something important happens related to one of your other widgets (sports, finance, and breaking news) you may see an announcement from that widget on your taskbar.

These notifications are meant to be quick and glanceable, and if you don’t interact with them, the taskbar will return to showing you the weather.

 You can download the Windows Web Experience Pack from the Microsoft Store to enjoy this new feature.
