Visual Studio Community 2015 Start Page News Not Updating


  • I installed Visual Studio Community 2015 on Windows 10 Pro (64 bit) in mid-December 2015, and the start page news items haven't updated since that time.

    Tools > Options > Startup doesn't have any options relating to news items except "Download content every:" check box (which is checked) and a numeric up down control to set "minutes" which I've set to several values with no change.

    What am I missing?

    Thanks for your help.

  • Hi GeezzeerTwo,

    According to your steps, I think you don't missing any thing. The Startup settings used to set how many minutes the content will update.

    Following screenshot is the news in my Visual Studio Community 2015 Start page, please compare yours with mine, whether they are the same.

    If they are the same, I think there has no new content published currently. If they are different, after change the settings, please restart your Visual Studio/Computer to check whether they are the same.

    Best Regards,
