    no that is my problem!!!

    Ok then. Have you already set Internet Explorer as the default program with all of it's associations as cluberti posted above?

    Default Programs - Set Your Default Programs in Windows 8


    In addition, check in All Apps to see if it's listed there to be able to Pin to Start.

    You cannot pin the iexplore.exe file to Start for the IE10 Metro. That is for the IE10 desktop only.


    Did you first set Internet Explorer as the default program with all of it's associations as cluberti posted above?

    If you did, then you should see the IE10 Metro tile instead. If it's not on the Start screen then look for the IE10 Metro tile in "All Apps" to "Pin to Start".

    If restarting the computer doesn't help, then you may need to either refresh or reset Windows 8. Be sure to backup anything you do not want to lose first to be safe.
