With the arrival of the latest Windows 10 update, there was the addition of a new "News and interests" app view in the desktop's taskbar.
I was wondering how Microsoft added such a widget to my desktop. And if it was possible for me to create an app in C# that would act just like it.
What I mean by "acting like this app":
- Show a widget in the taskbar.
- Show an icon in the widget.
- Show text in the widget.
- Open some sort of "Form" when clicking on the widget.
I already know how to show Forms and taskbar icons in C#, but the widgets I know how to show are more like the sound, cloud and ethernet ones (like you can see in the taskbar of the photos I provided).
Is there a template to code this new type of widget?
In the end, I would like to make an app that shows the battery life of all the bluetooth devices connected to my pc in my desktop taskbar.
Any tips would be appreciated!
P.S. I say in C# because I've been working with this language for some time but I'm not against the idea of learning some new language!
