My MSN: Change the layout and move modules

Change the column layout of each tab on your My MSN page to suit your preference and your computer screen resolution. Then organize your content modules by moving them around on a tab or between tabs.

 

Signed in vs. not signed in

If you use My MSN without signing in to a Microsoft account, the browser saves your customizations in cookies. The next time you use the same browser, on the same computer, and go to My MSN, your customizations will appear.

If you use a different browser or computer, your customizations won't appear. If the cookies are deleted, your customizations, including content, layout, and themes, will be lost. To see your customized My MSN page in any browser or on any computer, always sign in with a Microsoft account.

  2. In the upper-right corner of the page, click Customize.

Move a module
