    Win 8 Questions New User


    I have an Acer touch screen Aspire ZS600, Win 8 installed as original OS.

    How do you print an email?
    Ordered tickets on line and need to print the bar codes. On XP I right click and select print.
    Here?

    How do you move between web sites?

    How do you save a "favorite" web site and then recall it?

    Where is the "Tools" menu to set up the start page in IE?
    I want IE to always start on a particular web site.

    Answers are appreciated, sarcasm is a waste of your time.

    Thanks

    Perhaps you should download the free e-book.

    Just click the Address bar and you can access your favourite sites, when you want to add a site to Favourites, right click, click + sign on the top right corner.

    I assume you're talking about Internet Explorer on the Start screen...

    to print, you bring up the charms bar and select devices. then choose your printer.

    if you're using a mouse, you can right-click and create new tabs or select among the tabs you already have. right-clicking also brings up the address bar.
    if using touch, swipe from the top or bottom edge of the screen.

    if you want to see your options, bring up the charms bar and select settings.

    to add a favorite/bookmark, either 1) right click with mouse and click on the pin button or swipe with finger and tap on the pin button.

    to see your bookmarks or your most frequently visited sites, click on the address bar.
