With the new version of Windows 8 / 8.1 it is possible now to have your favourite website pinned to the Start Screen. Certain websites will have customised their tiles for them to display different icons and latest news feeds. Here’s how to pin a site…
In the metro version of Internet Explorer 10 /11 if you load up your website that you would like to pin. Once loaded if you swipe your finger up the screen so you can see the menu options (as in the picture). Press on the Favourites icon (star).
Once you have pressed on the Favourites icon you will see an icon that looks like a pin, press on that.
You should see a box now appear with a tile icon, in Windows 8.1 four different sizes are available and you can scroll through them by pressing the left or right arrows in the picture. Select what version you would like, tiny, square, wide or large.
When you have selected your tile it will now appear in the Start Screen, certain websites will display blog updates. Why not have a go!
