    Internet Explorer App problem in metro menu


    Accidentally deleted Internet Explorer from Metro Menu, and now I tried to restore it through a computer search, I clicked on the pair at first but now when I go through the menu schoolbooks Metro IE it came to me like the desktop or through the app ...
    There may be a way to return the Internet Explorer app??

    Open your desktop IE and make it default and see whether it fixes.
    Default Programs - Set Your Default Programs in Windows 8
    EDIT:
    You could also try resetting IE:Internet Explorer - Reset - Windows 7 Forums

    Windows 8 has two main modes: Start screen, and Desktop. The Start screen mode (formerly known as Metro) is the new face of Windows, while the Desktop mode is the traditional interface. Both the Start screen and the Desktop have Internet Explorer apps powered by IE 10 runtimes, but Internet Explorer on the Start screen is more restrictive, and does not allow Flash, Silverlight, or ActiveX controls. It’s also important to note that the Start screen mode is the default GUI in Windows 8.
    Beyond the Internet Explorer apps in Windows 8, there are two other IE 10 runtimes: WebView and the native Windows Runtime. WebViews can be used in Windows 8 apps, but this environment is the most restrictive of the four. The native Windows Runtime environment has also been tightened down for security, but it provides APIs which extend its functionality and this is the environment in which JavaScript-based Windows Store apps run.
    We have more details on the four IE 10 runtimes in Windows 8 on our Wiki.
