If you're always on the lookout for new RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds, you probably look to see if the new Web site you're browsing features a feed. To make this easier, you can configure Internet Explorer 7 to automatically alert you that the page you're currently visiting has an RSS feed. Here's how:
- Launch Internet Explorer 7.
- Press [Alt] to bring up the standard menu, then pull down the Tools menu and select the Internet Options command.
- When you see the Internet Options dialog box, select the Content tab.
- Locate the Feeds section and click the Settings button.
- When you see the Feed Settings dialog box, select the Play A Sound When A Feed Is Found For A Webpage checkbox.
- Click OK twice — once to close the Feed Settings dialog box and once to close the Internet Options window.
Now, each time that Internet Explorer 7 locates an RSS feed on a page, it will play a designated sound.Miss a Windows XP tip?
