    Move IE 11 Metro Address Bar To Top Of Page


    Hi,
    As I'm used to having the address bar @ the top of the page, (like it is in the desktop version)..it looks like MS would have offered an option to do so in the 'metro' version. I hope that some user can come up with a 'hack' to get that done.

    Hello All,
    The more I read about the new IE 11 browser being used in the start screen mode, I really think my question was posted for no reason. I think by design..it's PURPOSELY put on the bottom of the page. At least for me, I vastly prefer the 'desktop' version of IE 11 (when I use it!), over the 'start' page version. As I'm STILL having issue's with my gmail loading correctly in IE 11, I've just been using google chrome instead, everything works fine with it.

    I would say stick with chrome unless you have a Surface tablet and want your bookmarks and tabs synced up with your desktop.

Either way WCP is more than just a love/hate of metro. Anyone else think we should just get on with the other aspects?
