    Desktop IE 10

    Anyone else having problems with the desktop version of IE 10 in Windows 8 CP? As poster earlier, facebook has issues when you try to post a comment. I am also finding that Hotmail is a problem too, I keep getting a yellow bar adjacent to "inbox" that tells me "We can't connect to Hotmail right now. Please try again later" and I am unable to open any of my emails because of it.

    The strange thing is that everything works ok in the metro version of IE 10 however I have not worked out how to save passwords in that version.

    Seems nobody else is having problems with the desktop version of IE10 other than m. Is there a way to uninstall and re-install it or start it in "safe mode"?

    Found the culprit … it was Internet Download Manager. I uninstalled it and presto I can now comment in Facebook and my Hotmail loads properly. I love that program so I hope it updates to work in IE 10. In the meantime anyone know of a download manager that works in IE 10?

    Try Free Download Manager or FlashGet.

    If FlashGet also doesn't work, try Chrome or Firefox. I use Chrome and IDM and I don't get any problems.

I don't know what to call the old desktop since the tile version is called Metro. But when working on the old desktop version and you want to clear everything off the screen and just view the desktop, where is the button for this? XP had this button, but cant find it on W8.
