    Hello Dwayne, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Do you mean that you only have the IE desktop version from your Start screen?

    If so, then see if going through the options in the tutorial below may be able to help.

    Hope this helps,

    In that case, you may need to refresh Windows 8.

    Not everything like a reset, but the blue Note box at the top of the tutorial link in my post will show you more on what will be affected.
