    You can't. But, define what you mean by "application s/w" and "runs". You can enable IE8 compatibility mode, but that's not actually IE8, it's just IE10 acting like IE8. If you have the Pro version, you can use Client Hyper-V to install a copy of Windows 7 in a virtual machine and run IE8 in that.

    I think that IE10/11 has backwards compatibility until IE7 !
