    disable tiles in IE10 metro

    I've disabled autofill, suggestions etc. in IE10 non-metro version address bar.
    However, when I use IE10 metro-style, I always get a list of tiles with frequently visited sites.
    I would like to disable this feature. If possible, permanently.

    Metro has a lot of these features. The weather in remote places is shown etc. I find it annoying and distracting.
    Is there a simple way to disable all of them at once?

    Now you have to "opt out" each time. It would be nice if metro had a default "opt in" setting for basically every automatic feature.

    Can't answer on all--but am hoping I am understanding you. So, for example, on the weather app, you could right click on it and either unpin it or uninstall it.

    What I think happens is that the frequent and favorites are pulled from the desktop IE. It's the same for mine, all my favorites that in IE desktop are the same in metro IE and I haven't used metro IE but twice and never went to any sites...just to verify it was working.

Is there any way to disable scrolling on the start screen or change the tile scaling by a small amount? I've got a 1680x1050 monitor and when there's 10 medium sized tiles across the screen, it activates the scroll bar, but there's no need for the scroll bar as all the tiles fit on the screen...

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...

Hi, Sorry if this has already been asked - I'm trying to catch up with developments and it seems easier asking rather than blundering my way between Metro and Normal mode. For regular browsing I'm using IE10 from the normal Windows desktop. I find that if a program opens IE10, it opens the...
