Windows 8 and 8.1 Forums

    How do I get to my homepage? How do I get to favorites? I am very near to the point that I uninstall windows 8 and reinstall 7. I don't need this. Why did they develop this piece of shit?

    64-bit Windows 10

    Hello John,

    I'm assuming that you are referring to the Metro version Internet Explorer 10 (IE10).
    You could also use the desktop version of IE10 instead by opening IE10 while on the desktop instead of Start screen.

    Hope this helps.
