Add a Stock Quote to the Favorites Bar
SUMMARY: Keep up with a company's stock by placing a link on Internet Explorer 8's Favorites Bar.
Want to keep up with the price of a particular stock, but don't want to open up a financial website as a new tab and constantly jump back and forth? With Internet Explorer 8 you can view stock quotes directly via the Favorites Bar by adding a Web Slice via the Bing search engine.
1. Perform a Bing search for a stock quote. Note that for the web slice to work, you can only search for one stock at a time, but you can add multiple web slices to the Favorites Bar.
2. Hover your mouse pointer over the stock quote. A green Web Slice button should appear.
3. Click the Web Slice button, and the "Add a Web Slice" dialog box appears.
4. Click the "Add to Favorites Bar" button.
Click the new link in the Internet Explorer 8 Favorites Bar and the stock quote should appear, including the P/E Ratio, 52 Week Range, Market Cap, and other information.
Return to the Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 page.
