Today my default MSN news page in Edge Chromium opens with news from India instead of US. Everything from news to movies is India and Bollywood. Why? Going to Personalize, it shows I have selected 'US news' and News and Cars and Weather.  Any idea why?

Are you located in India?
your VPN/proxy using Indian IP?

I think he is referring to the news page that is on the default new tab page in Edge insider. you know, that small button at the bottom of the new tab page

@HotCakeX 

It is indeed the edge://newtab page

I am not located in India, or using a VPN. I am actaully located in the Netherlands. But just trying to find out the URL, it brings me now to the correct MSN page again. Somehow it got it wrong this morning. Thanks

Well there isn't much settings in newtab page but you can try heading over to https://www.msn.com/en-us/settings
and see if everything is alright in there.
if you change anything in there, try restarting your browser to look for any changes in newtab page.

if that doesn't fix it, try clearing your browser data from the Edge insider settings:
edge://settings/clearBrowserData
(select the first 4 checkboxes from the top)
then restart the browser and check newtab page again.

hope that helps :)

Does anything on that page say MSN?

 

Mine says My Feed .......... Powered by Microsoft News.

Mine is coming up localized to my city. I tried it on Edge Canary, Old Edge, and Chromium a few times and it was fine. I'm kind of clueless why that's happening to you. That usually happens when you're using an IP that's been redirected or VPN or Tor Browswer. Try it again especially after rebooting your computer and/or system. Also as HotCakeX said to clear out your entire browser history/data than reboot it all and see what happens.

Hi@Ben Geerdes 

 

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