When I click on the Widgets button on the taskbar or use Windows+W the widgets start to load then immediately crash without ever populating.  I upgraded to Windows 11 on the 5th and this has never worked properly.  I am new to using widgets so would have whatever the default ones are loaded.

@doughart2 I had the same issue. The solution that worked for me was simply reinstalling EdgeWebView2 (Evergreen Standalone Installer x86) from this URL: https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/webview2/

Hope it works for you too.
