Microsoft News is a web-based service that delivers quick and relevant news stories based on the latest Microsoft products and services. There is a hot new news app in town: Microsoft News. The app has been redesigned and tailored for the corporate environment before the relaunch later this year. Microsoft has a small team of experienced editors who curate news items from leading sources around the globe.
The Microsoft News app enables you to get breaking news stories and tips right to your email inbox. You can set up your morning or afternoon email delivery with the news desktop applet and receive quick access to recent and global news items from all over the world. From the main menu of the Microsoft News app, you can see which stories have been requested, and you can even set up automatic email delivery to your email inbox with a few simple clicks. If you are signed up to the Windows Live ID online community, you will also sign up for the free Microsoft Newsletters from Microsoft Outlook.
One of the many enhancements in the new tab page of the Microsoft News app is setting custom labels for a particular category. For example, if you are interested in the latest Amazon Kindle news, you can enter” Kindle” or “K eBay” as appropriate to label the news category. Once you have created a category and labelled a news item, you can assign a special URL link to which you want everyone to go when they click on the link. The link will always direct them to the Microsoft news website to get detailed information about the item.
One of the major enhancements in the news app is the enhanced Microsoft tracking prevention settings that make it easier to manage your email contacts. You can now set up email filters that prevent all emails from the specified recipients from being sent to your Inbox. This is especially useful if you receive many electronic mails from a particular organization or business. Using third-party software tools to manage your Microsoft Outlook email account, you can set up and manage these filters. In earlier versions of Microsoft Outlook, you would have to manually add and remove multiple contacts from your Inbox. You can now set up Microsoft Newsletters to automatically remove these contact types from your Inbox.
You can also use the news category filter to quickly locate and categorize items in your Inbox by relevance. For example, suppose you’re signed in to an organization newsletter as a Microsoft Business Partner. In that case, you can specify that only newsletters sent from your organization will show on your new tab page. By setting the third-party category filter to true, you’ll only see items related to your Microsoft Business Centre membership. Another new feature in Microsoft Newsroom is the ability to search for specific keywords. If you enter “search news” as the second or third word of the category filter, it’ll direct you to a new tab page where you can select and view the articles related to the terms you entered.
To take it one step further, you can use the Clear History button on the top right corner of the Microsoft Newfront page. You can permanently delete all items and history associated with a specific Microsoft News headline by tapping this button. This is especially helpful if you forgot to save your browsing history or accidentally deleted your Internet Explorer cookies from your computer. In addition, by tapping on Clear History once, you can restore your earlier configuration, including your saved passwords, email messages, and other data. By experimenting with these new features, you can quickly find ways to make your browsing more efficient and your news easier to read.
