- [ Voiceover] Hi I'm Nick Brazzi. Welcome to Up and Running with Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer is the web browser that comes bundled with Windows 8. Surfing the web can be pretty easy but there are lots of optional features and settings that you can adjust in Internet Explorer. We'll start by making sure you're comfortable with the basics of browsing the web, then we'll look at some of the more common features in Internet Explorer including downloading files, browsing the web with tabs, and customizing the interface. We'll talk about creating and managing favorites which are also known as bookmarks, then we'll talk about privacy.
There are lots of pieces of information that Internet Explorer saves, like your browser history, saved passwords and cookies, things that you might want to monitor for privacy reasons. I'll get you familiar with how to work with all of these pieces of saved data and how to clear them. We'll finish up with the touch screen version of Internet Explorer that you might use on a tablet or a two in one computer. If you use Internet Explorer and you're not sure how everything works, or you just have some questions about the settings, I hope you'll join me for this course Up and Running with Internet Explorer.
