I am from the UK. I still dont have the option to set my locale lads. Everything i get is news from the US which i dont really care, and even the temperature in Farenheit - useless to me. 

This is awful because today is Remembrance Day. Instead of putting a field of poppies or something like that, you just blasted us with american flags. Our King George V sent his soldiers to fight for a cause, and all I get is a flag of a place across the pond. Our flag isnt the Stars and Stripes. Our flag is the Union Jack, and we shall fight for it. For God, King and Country.

Hi,
in my experience with Edge insider canary, it uses my IP address to detect my locale and show me relevant content, I tested different countries on Edge insider using VPNs.
but it could also be getting its information from the settings in here:
edge://settings/languages

so like if the language in there is set to "English (United states)" instead of "English", I think it means you get the US version of news.

about the weather, try setting the correct unit in here see if it changes anything:
http://msn.com/

@HotCakeX  Im behind an UK ip address.

 

But your suggestion using edge://settings/languages did. Many thanks, now i've got my Royal Navy Reservist Richard Davies there. Many thanks chap!

That's great, you're welcome :)

Hi@easyhoon 

 

Now added the ability to change the location for news content on the new tab page in Version 81.0.387.0

you can now change it to UK :)
