    But the remote desktop app does come pre-installed, so i'm rather confused why someone would make a big deal about how the app that doesn't come pre-installed isn't the only way to use remote desktop when the app that does come pre-installed still works the same way it always has.

    This whole thread is pointless. Until Jimbo went on his rampage, I didn't even know there WAS a metro remote desktop app. I just started remote desktop the normal way, the way jimbo seems to think is a "trick" of some sort. Whatever floats your boat, I guess.

    Hi there
    Not jimbo on his rampage -- but perhaps "You Should have gone to 'Specsavers'.

    Here's a screenshot. !!!!

    BTW How DO you start RDP "In the normal way ??". What is it.

    Anyone got a problem with a ctrl key while jumping in and out RDP screens? Mine keeps getting stuck randomly. Pressing CTRL will unstuck it.

IE in Metro Mode versus Desktop Mode
OK, I was fooling around with IE 10 and at some point it got into a state where it only starts in desktop mode. I followed some directions for how to select the mode, but my mode choice is greyed out for some reason. Any idea why?
