    I searched but could not find any answers. I have a SP2 and when I go in to the news app and click settings there is a "read articles offline" switch that is set to "on"

    How does this actually work? If I find an article I want to read offline, what do I do?

    Thanks,

    Galen

    It's only for the built-in news sources and it'll download the articles meaning you can read them when there's no internet connection. Just fire up the News app when you have a connection, let it do its thing and then read them later. If you add RSS feeds, it won't download them, you need to be online.

    When the setting is set to on, when you have an internet connection it Syncs the latest content for off-line reading, IIRC it is about 2 links deep.

    There are still people who don't have unlimited internet access anytime anywhere?
