One of the coolest things you can do in Windows 8.1 with Internet Explorer is make live tiles from websites. Microsoft has made it simple for any website to become a pinnable live tile with real time updates. No apps required. Since we don’t have a Windows 8 app we thought it’s long overdue that we enable this feature. If you’re unfamiliar with how to do it follow the steps below.

  1. Open Internet Explorer in Metro mode.
  2. Go to
  3. Tap the star icon in menu bar.
  4. Tap the pin icon.
  5. Choose the size of tile you want.
  6. Tap “Pin to Start.”

These live tiles work exactly like real ones. You can resize them on the Start Screen, and even turn off the live tile functionality. All sizes will show recent articles except the small size.
