Know. Now. : MSN for Windows 8 Arrives this Week

Designed specifically for Windows 8 and Internet Explorer 10

Windows 8 arrives this week!

Starting today, people running Windows 8 can experience MSN in a brand new way.  Designed exclusively for Windows 8, the all new MSN experience will be the first thing you discover when you launch Internet Explorer 10. The new MSN gives you a place where you can be informed, explore and let your curiosity reign. At first glance, you will notice MSN looks different. The new MSN experience is clean, simple and built for touch. Whether you’re following your favorite sports team or breaking news, the experience is intuitive and consistent. The content flows from the homepage to channels without interrupting the visual layout, and you’ll know what stories are most important, just by viewing the size of the story tile.


The new MSN experience for Windows 8 is fast. Because Internet Explorer 10 was designed to take advantage of the system architecture of Windows 8, rendering complex page layouts and high resolution images is faster and more fluid.  Now you can easily view images, slideshows and videos, without compromising the overall experience. The result is a cleaner more “app-like” experience that allows you use the Flip Ahead feature to swiftly jump from article to article with a simple gesture. As before, MSN for Windows 8 brings you trusted, world-class news from a variety of sources, including new content relationships with the Associated Press and Reuters.  

Give it a try and let us know what you think.

How do you change the location for Weather?  The city location is incorrect.  It is possible to add but not remove the location.

I just tried Windows 8 for the first time. I really like how they set it up. It seems really simple to use and very user friendly.

Trying to figure out the weather issue. I tried Blink's suggestion, however on the "my msn" page, it has my correct location and ONLY my location. Unfortunately when I go back to my home page which is the msn for windows 8 page, it still shows the wrong city :-(

, had the same problem. On the MSN for Windows 8 page, click on for Windows 8, just to the left of the big MSN. Top left of the page. When that page opens, go to the bottom and click


Click My Msn


This page will open and weather should be somewhere on the page.


On the weather thingy, click Menu and then Change details. Enter the zip code you want, and then remove the other one that was incorrect.


Might be an easer way, but this worked for me.
