Sites you love: Pinned and favorites

Pinning a site creates a tile on your Start screen, giving you one-touch access to that site. Some pinned sites will show notifications, so you know when new content is available. You can pin as many sites as you like, and organize them into easy-to-manage groups. From the Address bar, tap or click  Pin site Windows 8 - Internet Explorer 10 - Pin site , and then tap or click Pin to Start.
If you have a lot of sites to keep track of, you can create a favorites list. When you add a site to your favorites, it appears in the Address bar and in your favorites list in Internet Explorer for the desktop. From the Address bar, tap or click Pin site Windows 8 - Internet Explorer 10 - Pin site , and then tap or click Add to favorites.

See if your site has an app

Some websites give you the option of getting their app. Like a pinned site, a web app gives you instant access and a new way to experience the site’s content. You can snap an app to view it side-by-side with sites in Internet Explorer. To get an app, from the Address bar, tap or click Page tools  Windows 8 - Internet Explorer 10 - Page tools , and then tap or click Get an app for this site.
