Transcript:Subscribe to RSS Feeds Using VistaHi, I'm Don Schechter for About.com Computing. Today, I will show you how to subscribe to RSS Feeds using Microsoft Vista.
What Does RSS Mean?RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. RSS feeds provide information from Web sites, such as news sites, that becomes readily available to you on your computer when you subscribe.
Go to the Web SiteFirst, open up your Web browser, and go to the site that has the RSS Feed that you want.
Next, click on the RSS button here. Remember, if the Web site doesn't have the RSS button, it means that there aren 't any feeds available for that site.
Subscribe to the RSS FeedClick on the 'subscribe' option you want from the pull-down window. For example, on cnn.com, I can choose to subscribe to the Top Stories or Recent Stories.
Next, you can make changes that you want, like the name or location of the RSS feed, in the dialog box here. Click 'OK' when you are satisfied with your RSS feed.
Access the RSS FeedOnce you have subscribed, the RSS feed will be visible in your browser tool bar here. To access the feed, click on the RSS feed button. You will see the latest information here.
