How to get rid of the Widgets on the Windows 11 taskbar

If you look on the left side of the taskbar in Windows 11, you will see a widget here. This widget on the taskbar shows the current weather in your location.

This weather location is determined through the location settings on your computer. Some people find this weather widget very useful. Other people want to remove this widget from the taskbar in Windows 11 as soon as possible.

If you click on this widget, then a new window will open. You will see much more than just the current weather in this widget window. For example, you can see the current news in your region, sports results, top stories, photos from OneDrive, and the current stock market notes.

If you wish to remove the weather widget from the taskbar in Windows 11, you will no longer have access to this information. In addition, you will no longer see the current weather on the left side of the taskbar.
