    Internet Explorer GOne


    Hi All,

    Was hoping to upgrade one of the games i downloaded in Metro, however I cannot add a payment method (paypal) because when it sends me to paypal to authenticate, it opens Chrome on the desktop.

    I cannot actually find internet explorer in metro at all.. I can Run iexplore.exe fine, but searching in metro and its not there

    How can

    1: I add my payment method as the redirect doesnt work from the desktop
    2: How do I get internet explorer back

    I saw some threads saying you have to have IE as your default, but I dont want it to be my default

    Hello Tomination,

    Sorry, but in order to have the IE10 Metro available on the Start screen, IE10 must be set as the default program with all of it's associations.
