Finance

The Finance app is Windows 8’s one-stop shop for business, economic, and investing news and statistics, gathered by Bing Finance. The main Finance app screen is divided horizontally into eight sections:

Today—The top story of the day as well as recent values of market indices such as the Dow and the NASDAQ.

Indices—Current values and daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly charts for four market indices: Dow, S&P 500, NASDAQ, and Russell 2000 (see Figure 2).

News—The latest news stories from the world of finance.

Watchlist—A list of stocks that you’re watching. Note that you only see this section if you’ve added at least one stock. To add a stock to your list, right-click the screen, click Watchlist in the app bar, click Add (+), type the company name or stock symbol, and then click the stock you want in the list that appears.

Market Movers—The stocks with the highest percentage gains and losses on the day, as well as the most actively traded stocks. NASDAQ stocks are displayed by default, but you can see other exchanges by clicking Market Movers and then clicking NYSE or AMEX.

Across the Market—Recent values for various currencies, bonds, commodities, and exchange-traded funds.

Rates—Recent rates for mortgages, savings accounts, and credit card accounts.

Fund Picks—Lists of top-performing mutual funds in various categories.


Note

By default, Finance shows you information tailored to your current Windows 8 regional setting. To see news and data from a different region, press Windows Logo+I (or display the Charms menu and click Settings), click Settings, and then use the Display Content From list to choose the location you want. Restart Finance to put the new setting into effect.


You can also see extra news and data from various categories by right-clicking the screen and using the app bar to click a category: Today, Watchlist, News, Rates, Currencies, World Market, or Best of Web.

Internet Explorer

The Internet Explorer app is a vastly scaled-down version of desktop Internet Explorer. Besides standard web browsing (that is, typing a new address, clicking links, and using the Back and Forward buttons to navigate your session history), you can only do the following with the Internet Explorer app:

Select a frequent site—When you click inside the Address box, Internet Explorer displays a list of the websites you’ve visited most often, as shown in Figure 3. Click one of those tiles to surf to that site.

Pin a site—Rather than storing favorites, as in desktop Internet Explorer, the Internet Explorer app enables you pin a site, which you do by clicking the Pin Site icon to the right of the Address box and then clicking Pin to Start. This not only adds the site to the Pinned section of the browser (this section appears to the right of the Frequent section when you click within the Address box), but it also adds a tile for the site to the Start screen.

Add a tab—To load a page into a new tab, right-click the screen and then click New Tab (+), or press Ctrl+T. To load a link into a new background tab, hold down Ctrl as you click the link; to load a link into a new foreground tab, hold down Shift and Ctrl as you click the link. To shut down a tab, right-click the screen and then click the Close (X) button in the top-right corner of the tab.

Browse privately—To start a surfing session where Internet Explorer doesn’t store your browsing history (addresses visited, page data, cookies, and so on), right-click the screen, click Tab Tools (the ellipsis icon), and then click New InPrivate Tab.

That, we’re sorry to say, is about it. There are a few (a very few) options you can configure by pressing Windows Logo+I and then clicking Internet Options. What about security, you ask? The Internet Explorer app runs in enhanced protected mode by default, so it’s super-secure right out of the box, although that also means it doesn’t support add-ons and other interface extensions.
