    Start Screen version of IE


    When I am using the Start Screen version of IE (is that the right way to refer to it?), if I control click on a link, a bar appears momentarily at the top showing the open pages. But then it disappears. How do I access that bar when needed?

    Thanks

    Hello Vincenzo,

    Oficially it's called the "IE10 Windows UI" version, but it's also known as either "Metro IE10" or "IE10 Metro". Whatever fancies you though.

    You can right click on a empty area in IE10 Metro, or swipe down from the top of your touch screen to see this tab bar.

    Hope this helps,

    Hi, try double clicking the link, it will open in a new window.

    Thanks Shawn.

    I can't really say I see the value in that version of IE, but I am working with it to see if I can understand it. Looks like on a tablet it would be convenient.

    You're most welcome. Yeah, IE10 Metro is better suited for a mobile device.
