Thor, Rushell, Dougie
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to set up the News application when using a Microsoft Lumia 535.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the power button located on the right-hand side of the phone
Swipe the lock screen up to reveal the home screen
Find the "News" tile on the home screen
The tile's appearance may vary, as it will provide different news stories throughout the day. If it is not on the home screen, swipe to the left to open the App menu, and scroll to find the News application there.
Press the tile to open the application
The "Welcome" page appears first, along with a message asking if we would like to receive breaking news alerts
Choose Yes or No by swiping across the switch on the right side of the screen
Press the "done" button at the bottom right of the screen to confirm any changes
The News application will now open
Swipe across from right to left to see the "headlines" and "Top Stories" page
Press the ellipsis, or three dots, at the bottom right corner of the screen to reveal more options
Just above this list of options are two icons, "reorder" and "edit".
Tap the "reorder" icon to change the order of the types of headlines
Move whatever type of news is most important to you to the top.
Double tap on a news topic
This will bring up top stories related to that particular subject
Swipe across to the right to bring up the "sources" screen
Press the ellipsis at the bottom right of this screen to bring up additional options, including icons to edit and search
Tap on the edit icon, the pencil, at the bottom of the screen to follow particular news sources of interest
Scroll down on the list of different news sources, and click the checkbox to the left of those you want to follow
To search for a news source not in the list, tap the "Search" box at the top of the screen
Tap the ellipsis at the bottom right
Then tap on the "region" icon on the right, which is a gridded sphere
Choose a region from the list to find other news outlets
Press the left-facing arrow at the bottom left of the screen to go back
Tap the house icon at the bottom of the screen to return to the main screen of the News application
Scroll across from right to left once to see "headlines", as mentioned before, and again to see "sources", which was also discussed previously
To reorder the sources, tap the first icon at the bottom of the screen
The icon has two up and down arrows on it.
Swipe across to the right from the "sources" screen to reach "topics"
Tap the plus sign at the bottom of the screen to add a topic of interest
This will also bring up the option to search for a topic. Type in a subject, and press the arrow at the bottom right corner of the screen.
A list of "topics" concerning that subject will appear
We can edit this topic or add new ones by pressing the plus sign at the bottom of the screen
If more than one topic has been added, these topics can be rearranged by tapping the reorder icon with two arrows at the bottom of the screen
Scroll to the right once more to see "videos" of current news stories
