Most Windows 8 users now know how to pin or undo boot screen tile shortcuts for Windows Store applications. But it is a little known fact that you can even display the internal sections or content of some Windows 8 applications directly on your home screen.

Take the example of the news application. When you open the news application, you will first see the local news. Scroll a little and you will see the national and then world news. If you are interested in World News, you must open the application, scroll down and click World News to view it. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just create a tile to open the world news directly?

Let’s see how to do this in Windows 8.

Once the World News is open, right-click and select’Pin to Start’ in the bottom bar of the application. You can even give it any name in the pop-out.

When you click Pin to Start, the World Messages tile is attached to your Windows 8 Home screen.
