You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Microsoft Launcher News tab should allow more customization of topics and use the User's preferences of specific topics, not just toggles.

    I can set personalized news topics and other interests at a topic level (e.g. electric vehicles) in Cortana and Microsoft News and other properties. The launcher, since it uses our Microsoft account, should be able to take advantage of this (and provide further topic isolation or lookup) rather than just the general toggle settings currently allowed.

    • Filter out News Sources in Feed

      I use the built in news feature because it's both pretty and convenient. However, although some may like it, I am not interested in viewing all news sources included in the service. I think many people would also appreciate the option to select (or deselect) various stations from the list to be shown.

        • The News Section needs work. I want to pick my own individual sources. I want localised news (singapore) as well as USA/Tech news.

          Other news aggregators allow you to choose individual sources to be displayed in your feed. Please allow this function. We want to be able to selecting varying topics to be displayed in the news section

          • add Nepal (Nepali or English) in news market section.

            In news market section there's not the name of Nepal, so how can I personalize the feeds!

                • reading mode in news

                  When I open a news from news section of the launcher, it opens in some kind of browser (edge or something else). could you please add two functionalities in that operation? one is the reading mode, and the other is an inbuilt feature to share the news.

                  • It would be nice to see "News" in "Your Feed" displayed in some kind of grouped category or order . Currently its all jumbled up.

                    It would be nice to see "News" in "Your Feed" displayed in some kind of grouped category or order . Currently its all jumbled up eg. news, sports, lifestyle category are all displayed intermingled and difficult to follow. When i read news my preference is to first read all days news, then followed by sports, then followed by technology...etc etc.

                            News settings are way too limited and I have no control over where the news come from. I don't care about articles on the 20 reasons I don't want to live in a tiny house and the like. I want real news from Reuters and Bloomberg

                                    when the news feed refreshes, it would be better if the feed went to the top where they newer stories are. if not, then a button to quickly go to the top of the feed would also work

                                      News feed - why not integrate the feed from news app? Configuration of free is completely different, also at level of feeds per country /language.
