Browsers/Mail :: How To Open IE10 On Metro Interface
Apr 13, 2013
I have this problem here since ~2months ago, i try to open IE10 on Metro interface, and nothing happens! i already tried to put all defalut settings for IE, and still won't open. the IE10 on classic interface opens and works with no problems.
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.
On a variety of sites -- YouTube, eBay, FoxNews.com, etc -- IE10 (the desktop, non-Metro version) crashes twice and then gives up, returning this error message:
"When a website causes a failure or crash, Internet Explorer attempts to restore the site. It stops after two tries to avoid an endless loop."
If you google that error, you get some MS suggestions on how to fix it in IE9. The auto fix doesn't run under Windows 8, and clearly doesn't apply anyway, and the manual suggestion to reset IE didn't work.
When I disable Flash through "Manage Add-ons" I find that I can still play some YouTube videos (I assume using html5) but when the video ends my screen goes blank for a second and then the computer goes to the login screen. When I log back in all the applications that were open are no longer open. Is there any way to disable Flash in IE10 and not have this behavior?
For some reason or other I can no longer access my email account Outlook.com (known formerly as Hotmail.com) when using the Internet Explorer10 browser, it will not go to the sign in window, although I can access the account by using the "InPrivate Browsing" option in IE10.
Not a huge problem as I can and do use another browser most of the time. I am curious as to why this has occurred more than anything?
The Manage Addon window in IE10 is not displaying correctly and there seems to be no way to resize the two panes that are not showing correctly. Do you think this would be a registry problem or do you think a reinstall of IE10 would override whatever setting is causing the window to display improperly. Would an uninstall and reinstall of IE10 be necessary or the best course?
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.
My previous machines where XP and Win7. Win 8 was forced upon me buying my current Rig. It's Metro Interfacelooks like a Giant Mobile Phone! I installed Classic Start Menu. It however gets flooded over by a giant Metro Screen, (when it decides It needs something), and there is no official way out, apart from closing down the Application via Task manager. Writing a program with no way out was in my days classed as anti social program behaviour. Why does MS elevate this to desired behaviour in Win8? I would like to see this crap interface purged from my machine. If that's not possible, I'll install Win7. What, after all, was wrong with the Interface that served us well from NT via Win95/98 via Win XP,Vista, tru Win7. Metro is frankly a Pile of rotten Horse Shit! It requires re-training of all staff who were previously accomplished for up to Win7.
When ever I click a mailto link in either Chrome, IE, Firefox and Opera it opens up a new chrome browser window. Before I installed windows 8 I had it opening up Outlook 2010 new email, now it opens up a new Chrome browser window.
How do I change it in windows 8 to when I click a link in any browser to open up Outlook 2010 new email as it did before?
(I don't use IE a lot ) I run a completely updated Windows 8.1 (home?) edition operating system so the browser I take it should be fully updated already. I have tried opening it directly from the local directory for it and also running as an administrator and neither would make it open.
There is no error message and there is no direct indication in the processes currently running under task manager that shows that it has booted up and is just not responding.
I thought maybe I could uninstall it but... then I look under program and features and I didn't see any relative program to uninstall for it. I remember a few years back uninstalling like version six or seven under a xp operating machine but that was ages ago.
I've installed StartMenuReviver which I find an excellent program. I've noticed that when I use the standard power off feature of the Metro interface that power is still present on (my) USB ports as witnessed by USB speakers still on and USB mouse still glowing (multi-coloured lighting inbuilt)
IF I use the power off feature of the StartmenuReviver app then I truly power off; speaker on light goes off as does the lighting feature of the mouse.
Obviously a complete shutdown is preferable so I turn off using the StartMenuReviver app. Is their a reason the Metro app doesn't fully shut down PC ??
I have three monitors connected up, sometimes when i open the metro screen via the windows key, it just freezes, i'm unable to close it or do anything with it, pressing the windows button does nothing either. I can still work on the other two screens however.S earching then clicking on files ALWAYS freezes it, to fix it i have to log out then back in or restart explorer.exe, why is this happening?
I installed Windows 8 in another partition just to learn it and do the move later. I got no big issues but...The next day I noticed I have no mouse pointer in the "metro" interface. If I am in the desktop the pointer shows OK.
I looked carefully at boot/turn off stages and at the beginning the mouse pointer is there but suddenly disappears. The same is when power off. Suddenly appears just before the final stages of the turn off procedure.
I can see the visual signals (mouse over) and click in apps but no pointer at all.
when I connect my USB 3g to windows 8, google chrome, ie, idm ..... all applications running but the metro interface does not work, it shows me a message that I'm offline and I need to connect to the internet for my email sync, for example the problem is that it works for all the other software but not metro interface
knowing that I have the final version of Windows 8 pro
everytime I open IE from my metro screen I get the desktop version. I have lots of links on my metro start screen for when I am in metro (I have a touchscreen laptop). Today, everytime I open a website I am put straight through to the desktop version of the site. No more swipy swipy.What have I done?
I bought a Dell 17r laptop a couple days ago and about an hour ago my IE 10 Metro switched to desktop when I clicked it, and now it wont switch back to metro! ive reset the IE TWICE now and nothing worked, I've tried multiple solutions and NOTHING has work(obviously) the desktop version is ugly.
I recently bought a Windows 8 tablet and I'm forced to use IE10 on it to browse the Internet because everything else is crap. I like the idea how you can swipe to the left and right to go back and forth webpages. But when info that, instead of just loading the page from a cache, the page completely reloads. It doesn't even take me the correct location of the webpage. These issues completely take away the advantage of swipe navigation.
Is there anyway to force IE not to reload the webpage completely when swiping back (don't really care about forward part)? If I could set a time period before reloading the page, that would be ideal.
BTW, It could be more noticeable because this Atom based tablet is much slower than a typical Windows 8 PC. Besides, I don't use IE on the desktop so I don't know how it performs on it. I bet it won't be as noticeable as on the tablet because it is multiple times faster than the tablet and it is connected to he Internet with a cable.
Ive set the IE as default from Internt otions of IE( dektop version). Now the app from start screen wont do anything. Th e desktop version works but It can be launch frpm the startscreen either. I have unpined and pined to startcsreen but no avail. That browser choice that keeps staying on the startscreen wont do a thing : cant instal IE from there
As I'm used to having the address bar @ the top of the page, (like it is in the desktop version)..it 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.
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?
