Browser Launch Settings In Modern UI Version Of IE 10

Internet Explorer 10 comes in two different versions: the minimalist Modern UI/Metro version accessed from the Start screen and the traditional, full-featured Desktop version accessed from the Taskbar.

When you click on hyperlinks outside of IE10, the pages are opened contextually, or in the corresponding version of IE10. For example, any sites pinned to the Taskbar will open in the Desktop version of IE10. Sites pinned to the Start screen are opened in the Modern UI/Metro version of IE10.

(A) To change these behaviors, open the Internet Options dialog box. Select an option from the Choose how you open links. If you want to always use IE10 on the Desktop, select Always in Internet Explorer on the desktop.

(B) To always open sites pinned as tiles to the Start screen in IE10 on the desktop, select the Open Internet Explorer tiles on the desktop check box so there is a check mark in the box.

(C ) The Modern UI/Metro version of IE10 does not support ActiveX or other extensions/add-ons (more about that later). This might cause some web pages to not display correctly. If you encounter this, you can open a specific web page open in the Modern UI/Metro version of IE10 in the Desktop version of IE10. To do this, click the Page tools icon on the Navigation bar at the bottom of the screen in the Modern UI/Metro version of IE10 and select View on the desktop.

(D) When selecting View on the desktop, only the currently active web page and tab opens in the Desktop version of IE10, not any other pages or tabs. The Modern UI/Metro version of IE10 a maximum of 10 tabs.
