  1. MSN news widget consistently brings me to the wrong articles

    MSN news widget in MS Launcher (specifically the hero, top-position tile) consistently brings me to the wrong articles. Tile is about Saudi Arabia and Yemen but story is about SUV car crash.

  2. News Feed

    I like the news feed on Microsoft launcher, however the news is irrelevant to me as non of the articles is related to my country or location.

    I'm from Nigeria, west Africa. Please try and offer localized content in the news feed.

    I use Yandex Zen an app from Russia for news. It gives me localized news from my country Nigeria.

    I believe Microsoft can do even better. Google is doing it. Microsoft can also do it.

    Thanks.

  3. Scrolling down the news (while reading) is extremely flawed. The page stops to move left/right.

    If I scroll perfectly vertical, then it's alright. But a little diagonal, and it detects it as scrolling left/right and tries to move to the next/previous news.

  4. Russian news in my Ukrainian account. I have no interest of any news about Russia at all. I tried to change it but Ukraine us not listed

    the issue is about news content for Ukrainian accounts. Russian news are not appropriate at all because of the actual war. News about an enemy abuses the most part of Ukrainian people.

  5. old news in the news feed.

    I'm seeing about 50% articles from over 9months ago. I'd prefer news to be stuff I didn't yet know to have happened.

  7. Certain news items are not relevant to my location such as new restaurants and other local news for completely different cities.

    Filter out local news items that are not relevant to my location or any locations that I'm watching. The locations for weather should be a good source for location-based local news items.

  8. Netherlands News market incorrect

    "Netherlands (Netherlands)" market shows Belgium news, and "Netherlands" market shows news from Netherlands. Would be better if markets are named "Netherlands (Netherlands)" and "Netherlands (Belgium)"

  10. News feed still showing sports news when topic disabled.

    News feed still shows sports news even when sports topic is disabled. News sources with "sports" in their name are showing up. You'd think that would be the first keyword to look for when excluding articles...

  15. msn advert

    msn advert constantly appearing on the bottom of the news section. why can't you dismiss once per browsing session rather than every time you open a news article?

  19. News market wrong language/region

    The news market lists Nederlands (Nederland), when in reality this option is used for Nederlands (België). Als wouldn't it be more logical to mention it in the same way as for French part of Belgium?
