    I followed the link after watching this video:

    However, when I opened the link to the store, I was confronted with this:

    Click image for larger version

    I then noticed that in the video the search button is installed first, before the browser. I'm already using the chrome browser, and had it set as default, and for some reason, the only way to access the 'metro' IE10 (searching for it without just takes you to the desktop version, which also doesn't work) is to have it as the default. I set it back by searching 'Default Programs' in the control panel, and then setting IE as the default. I entered the url again, and this time i was presented with the 'view in store' button. Clicking it successfully took me to the page and I now have it installed on my home screen; bye-bye bing

    Edit: Or just search for it as I found out literally moments ago in this post >.<

Google Search Provider
Anyone else noticed that IE10 doesn't allow Google to be installed as a Search Provider (despite it being arguably the world's most well-used search engine)? The list, part of which is shown below, is in alphabetical order and, as you can see, Google is not mentioned. I should point out that this...
