How to change the country of My Feed in Microsoft Edge Chromium? It always shows US.

@chdslv Yes, regional news exists (for Norway in my case) and Microsoft spends resources on creating and editing that content. It is a bit unfortunate that this content is only available in the classic Edge browser as of now.
I have an English language version of the Edge Insider browser installed but I would expect it to be possible to select the region for the feed content as a separate setting.
Please enable the setting - similarly as in classic Edge - to stop "blocking" the regional content.

@chdslv It linked to your browser language, at least was in recent builds. You can change it in the settings.

@Henry08 Seems to have no effect in the latest dev channel version.
I can't see any change - no regional (Norwegian) feed sources are available after changing browser language.
As far as I know, the settings for my personalized feed in the classic Edge browser is stored and synced with my MS account. Edge Insider does not honor these settings.
FYI: To my knowledge, the feed region and sources setting is shared between Edge classic and the Microsoft News app.

@YearnA I set language to norks and got this. I'm not so sure but it looks like Norwegian feed as for me. Canary 79.0294

@Henry08 You're right. I had multiple languages in my languages list, and moving Norwegian to the top was not sufficient. But when choosing "Display Microsoft Edge in this language" it works.
I was afraid that in order to get the "regionalized" feed to work I would have to change the languages list and thereby all "Accept-Language" request headers sent from Edge.
If the feed region/language will not have a setting of its own, I prefer that feed follows the browser "UI Language" setting instead like it does now.
I have a feeling that users will demand separate and more visible/available setting for the news feed language though.

The language could be British English, but say, I'd like to get info, say from Poland or Russia. For example, a person living in Poland should be able to have the browser in English, but get info news from Poland, and be able to choose from any other country.

@chdslv All I can do here is give a clue that I stumbled upon. It's also what led me to having this problem in the first place. Hopefully somebody that know more than me can do something with it.
I'm in the Mid-Atlantic region of the USofA, and my feed was set appropriately. Then I hooked up to my VPN and my IP address registered in Montreal, Canada. If I did anything else at this point, I don't remember, but my feed has been Canadian ever since. Disconnecting from my VPN does not change it back.
Good luck cyber sleuths!
