How to Use an RSS Feed in Internet Explorer
We’re so accustomed to getting information whenever we want. But when that information comes at us from multiple sources, so much of it gets lost in the chaos. It’s time consuming and headache inducing to check multiple apps all day, and even when you give into the urge to do just that, you know you’re missing things you might like to know about. You might miss an important update from your favorite political candidate, the final score of the game you had to skip because it conflicted with your kid’s soccer game, or the hilarious story shared by your favorite blogger.
That’s why an RSS feed reader is so ideal for the modern information consumer. You want to be in control of the news and media that comes your way, and you don’t want to miss things that are important to you. An RSS feed gives you that control. It keeps the updates from your favorite sites all together for you in one place — and it updates itself in real time.
If you’re using Internet Explorer, follow these steps to use your RSS feed.
1. Open Internet Explorer
2. Select to view the Command Bar. Right click near the tabs of your browser in any open portion. See if “Command Bar” has a check next to it. If it doesn’t, select “Command Bar.”
3. Go to your favorite pages. Browse to your favorite websites, and look for the orange RSS button. There should be a dropdown menu available. Choose that, and select the RSS feed’s name.
4. A dialogue box will show up and give you the option to save the feed.
5. Click “Subscribe to this feed,” and then the Subscribe button.
6. A new dialogue box will confirm that you’ve added the feed to your RSS feeder.
