To get a new tab in your browser is one thing, but how about using your new tab page to show personalised content such as your latest articles or pictures? Fortunately Windows provides a number of ways to access this extra space in your start menu. First of all you can use a page up / down the side of your start menu, or even right at the base of your screen, which is quite useful if you want to quickly go to a certain page. Alternatively you can use the regular start menu by clicking on the Start button and choosing your start menu. Each time you open a new window, there is a small section on the right hand side called Personalize tab which allows you to choose what displays in this slot.
To access this feature, right-click your start menu and choose "Properties". On the new tab page, click on the Settings gear icon to reveal the complete page design schemes available. Try out all the available designs to see which one best suits your style. If the default layouts are not cutting it, you can customize some of the features on the new tab page. At the bottom of the Personalization page you will find the "Schemes" link which will take you to the individual website components that you can add to your new tab page.
Two of the most common components that you can change are the color and the style of your new tab page. To change the actual colors of your background, simply highlight the tab you want to display and press the color button. If you would like to change the look of your button's click on the "Styles" link to find the kind of button style that you prefer. You may also change the font style and size, or change the alignment of text in many cases.
