Browsers/Mail :: Close All Tabs Simultaneously For Metro - IE 11 / Windows 8.1?

Nov 3, 2013

I love how Metro IE11 works now in Windows 8.1. I was using a reddit app, opened an article, and it spawn a separate window for the IE browser to read a link. Works great. But one day, when it launched the IE browser, I was hearing a video that was completely unrelated to the link.

So I bring up the tabs and I had like 50 tabs open! When I close the IE browser that spawns from reddit or from a newsreader like News Bento, I just drag the app to the bottom of the screen to put away IE. That didn't terminate the tabs. So it was tedious to close each tab independently.

is there a way to close all tabs immediately?

Browsers/Mail :: Suppress Display Of Close All Tabs - Close Current Tab

Aug 10, 2014

I am running Windows 8.1 and IE 11. When I have multiple tabs open and click the X in the upper right hand corner I get an option that asks me if I want to CLOSE ALL TABS - CLOSE CURRENT TAB. I always want to close just one tab. How can I suppress the display of the Close All Tabs - Close Current Tab question and still be able to close just one tab?

Browsers/Mail :: Sync Tabs In IE 11 - How To Manage Machines

Dec 2, 2013

This new sync tab feature in IE11 is handy. But it's also a bit annoying. I have about 7 or 8 PCs I use frequently and I re-install the OS all the time. So I end up with orphan machines that appear in IE 11 sync tabs and I can't seem to find a way to remove them. I also noticed that these tabs mysteriously disappeared on some of my machines.

Browsers/Mail :: Firefox Always Hangs At Close?

Oct 6, 2013

1) Firefox always hangs (Not Responding) when I try to close it.

2) Sometimes I am unable to kill the process from Task Manager or Process Explorer (access denied).

3) Sometimes it leaves behind a zombie process that can't be killed. I cannot launch a new Firefox process (it launches but stays hidden). The only solution is to reboot my computer.

4) If I leave Firefox open, after a while it becomes nonresponsive. I usually need to reboot the computer for reason 3 above.

I have seen similar behavior from Internet Explorer and iTunes, but not all the time. I am focusing on Firefox now because the problem is very repeatable.

I have scoured the internet looking for a solution but have come up empty. The Mozilla web site suggests I disable all add-ons, which I have done. This does not fix the problem, so it is something else. I have Norton Antivirus and have scanned my system for problems but it is clean (tried Malwarebytes too, but looks good). I have tried disabling my antivirus software (everything but the firewall) and still get the same problem. I have methodically gone through and made sure all of my drivers are up to date.

Browsers/Mail :: IE 11 - Close Link And Return To Same Location

Aug 19, 2014

In IE 11, if I click on a link on a page, then click the back arrow to leave that page, and go back to the original page, it takes me to the top of the original page, rather than were I was on that page. I think there must be a setting that controls this, but I can't find it.

Browsers/Mail :: IE10 Metro App Not Available In Metro Start Screen?

Aug 30, 2013

IE Metro tile is missing from my metro start screen. It's not in the 'all apps' list either. when I go to program default, it is set as the default browser. I went through all the checks in the tutorial on here, but at best, I can only get the desktop IE tile to pin to start. I would rather have the metro version tile on my start.

Browsers/Mail :: How To Connect Gmail Account To Mail Metro App Without Live ID

Mar 31, 2014

Is there any way to connect my Gmail account to the Mail Metro App without having to use my Live ID? I have absolutely no desire to tie all my stuff to a MS Live ID. Just want to be able to check my mail.

I have already installed Skype desktop to get around the Live ID crap for the metro version, and I will install Thunderbird if needed, but if I can find a way around it I will use the built in mail client.

Since I've not installed adobe reader, the preinstalled Reader app opened for viewing a pdf file. What is the intended method to close Reader and other metro apps? I don't see any way to do that. I don't expect we are supposed to use Task Manager to close it.

How To Close Program And Exit To Metro UI

Sep 4, 2012

When I exit / close [any program / application] I am presented with the old Windows 7 Desktop. Old W7 Desktop is the default when I close a program -- even if I started the program from Metro UI. I wish to see the Metro UI when I close any application. I do not like the extra keyboard press of the Windows key. How can I change Windows 8 such that I default to the Metro UI when I exit [close] any application?

Browsers/Mail :: Move IE 11 Metro Address Bar To Top Of Page

Nov 2, 2013

As I'm used to having the address bar @ the top of the page, (like it is in the desktop version) looks like MS would have offered an option to do so in the 'metro' version. I hope that some user can come up with a 'hack' to get that done.

Browsers/Mail :: Internet Explorer Not A Metro Application?

Oct 18, 2013

When I click onto the Internet Explorer tile on my Windows 8.1 Start screen Windows switches to the Desktop and opens Internet Explorer there as a Desktop application.

Can it really be possible that the Internet Explorer 11 is not a Metro application? Not that I am especially hot about the Start screen with all its tiles but it makes me wonder why the Internet Explorer - in my opinion the most important application for most "normal" Windows users - is not opening as a Metro application.

Is or is not the Internet Explorer a Metro application? If it is, how can I use it as such one?

Browsers/Mail :: Metro Version Of IE - Change Text Size

Apr 18, 2013

Big drawback with the Metro version of IE is that it doesn't seem possible to change the text size -- on a large monitor using the "Normal" version -- the desktop version of IE I can change the text size at will and zoom the image which I usually have at 150%.

The text size on the Metro version is FAR FAR too small for me on a large monitor -- can see myself needing a "White Stick" if I had to carry on reading like that for too long.

This whole idea of rigid window sizes where you can't zoom seems ridiculous.

Note here -- It MIGHT work on a TOUCH screen by pinching the sides but

1) can't test it as I don't have (or want) a touch screen when I'm working at a Desk.
2) The last thing I want to do is leave smeary finger marks over my nice expensive large LCD screen
3) even if it had touch - I'm sitting far too far away from it to make this a practical method of working to alter text and zoom etc.

(On a Samsung smart phone I don't have problems with text size by pinching the screen - but I'm NOT working on a PHONE when I'm at my desk with a nice large screen).

Browsers/Mail :: Make New Tiles For Non-metro Apps With OblyTile?

Sep 15, 2013

When I first installed Windows 8 there was the IE tile, with lighter blue background and white icon. Then I installed Chrome, at first start I used it as my default browser, mostly in Windows 8 mode, sometimes in desktop mode, but it always had the grey background tile with the Chrome icon. I wanted to make new tiles for my non-metro apps with OblyTile, and because I use IE sometimes I made one for that too, but after that my Chrome tile became a standard non-metro style tile with blue bg and smaller icon, using it first opens the desktop then the metro-mode chrome, and the original IE tile (I kept it from the beginning) reversed to the original, blue bg, white icon style, but Chrome is the default browser.

reverse Chrome to the gray bg tile and make it open the metro-mode without first opening the desktop?

Browsers/Mail :: Metro IExplorer Slow And Crashes After Short Time

Apr 23, 2014

Since a few days my Internet Explorer 11 (newest version) crashes after a few short browsing time on my Dell Venue 8 Pro. There are specific mostly high crowded sites I can go to and it will freeze, or just if I tab/surf fast enough for example click links in a row. I had the same problem 3 months ago, and the only solution which worked was to reset Windows, install everything new. It worked so far until a view days ago, it began again to show the same behavior: slow site rendering, and freeze after a short time. The behavior is described for example here too by other users:

IE11 crashing constantly after upgrading to 8.1 - Page 2 - Windows Phone Central Forums [URL] .....

I already tried the following steps without luck:

- reset IE settings to default
- cleared all cache/cookies/settings
- deactivated every plugin (I didnt have any special installed at all, I just deactivated the default ones one Flash, adobe pdf, Intel, to see if it worked, it didn't)
- gave "all installed applications" rights to c:
- did a sfc /scannow
- cleared Windows Store cache (wsreset)
- enable software rendering (which though doesnt have impact on metro ie I think)

Heres one of the appangs:

Protokollname: Application
