    Don't overlook the Snipping Tool which is good for taking images of what's on-screen.

I always resort to Explorer from the desktop because not seeing those options drives me bonkers.

    Any help would be appreciated.


    1. Don't run IE from the metro start screen (very clumsy no matter how you set it up here IMO); run it from your desktop.
    2. Leave IE as the default browser for "everything" to work smoothly.
    3. Use the Chrome browser from your desktop--if you are not enamored with IE. Reiterating, leave IE as the default.
