With Windows 8.1 you donít need two screens to view web pages side-by-side. Just right click on a link and then select for it to Open in a new window. Both windows will display with a 50-50 split, and you can even adjust how much you see of each page by dragging the black bar dividing them back and forth.

2. Reading View

Want to cut the clutter out of a web page and concentrate on just its text and photos? The new Reading View mode in Internet Explorer 11 does exactly this. To access it, tap the Book button on the web address bar and then adjust the style and size of what you see using the Options menu.

3. Set which passwords you save
