How to Use Windows 8.1 Reader App

Q: How do I send a web page into the Reader application in Windows 8.1?

A: The Reader application in Windows 8.1 is a great way to track web pages you want to come back to and read later. To add a page to the reader, from the Metro-style or "Modern" version of Internet Explorer (IE), open the Share charm and select Reading List.

This will open the Reading List application. Click the Add to Reading List icon in the top right corner.

The site will now be in the reading list. I demo this and other Windows 8. 1 features in my video "An Overview of Some New Features in Windows 8.1 Preview."
