    How do I change the home page for IE 10 on Windows 8?

    Somehow AVG secure search has become the home page when I open IE 10. I have tried changing the home page the way I do in Windows 7 and it does not work. I have the URL for the page I want to change to. I am using a mouse and keyboard and the Windows 8 desktop.

    In the desktop version of IE, go to Tools -> Internet Options, and set your homepage to whatever you want. Save it, and go to Metro IE making sure to kill it's process then launch it. Metro IE sets it's homepage to whatever desktop IE's homepage is.
