Checking out our favorite websites have become part of our daily routines, like taking out the trash or checking the mail (physical or electronic). Windows 8 allows you to pin your favorite sites to its Start Screen, giving each its own tile which serves as a shortcut directly to the web page.

To create tiles for your favorite sites in Windows 8:

  1. Navigate to a page that you want to create a tile for.

  2. Right-click or swipe up to open the App Bar.

  3. Click Pin site.

  4. Click Pin to Start. 

  5. Click the Pin to Start button to create the tile.
