When I right-click the screen in the Windows 8 News app, all I see is Sources and Worldwide news; no My News section. I can’t seem to add any new sources or change any of the existing views.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

What version is it? (on the Charms bar, go to Settings => About) What language is it set to? Which country are you in? (The News page in the store says Note: Some features and enhancements may not be available in all markets) – Bob Oct 29 '12 at 10:29
I was not using the US locale. Seems to work better now that I switched the locale. – efdee Oct 29 '12 at 10:58
Seriously? You've got to be in the US locale for this to work? That's absurd. – therefromhere Feb 2 '13 at 22:14

The My News section is there, see the video at Windows 8 guide: How to use the News app.

The relevant part of the video says:

Right-click on an empty part of the screen, and click My News.

After right-clicking, a menu appears:

If the My News section does not appear, then try to change your application content region/language to US (source News app - Can't change/delete/add sources).

Please add the my news option for all regions or the ability to add own feeds to it, otherwise tha app is useless outside the us.

  1. Open News app
  2. Press Windows + C
  3. Go to "options" and change "App language and content to" to some other setting and restart the news app

Like I said, when i right-click the screen, I only get 'Sources' and 'Worldwide (English)". Also no Bing story of the day or Bing news or whatever. – efdee Oct 29 '12 at 10:19
I appreciate the screenshot, but as I said, I don't have "Bing Daily" or "My News" there, only "Sources" and "Worldwide (English)". – efdee Oct 29 '12 at 10:26
@efdee - This sounds like a regional problem. – Ramhound Oct 29 '12 at 10:48
Changing the locale to the US fixed the problem. Kind of sad. But at least I can set the locale for the News app separately. Thanks! – efdee Oct 29 '12 at 10:57
