    IE in Modern UI?


    I just had a user come in with a problem with IE on her desktop so I thought I would see if the Modern UI browser would have the same problem. When I went to her Start/Tile screen, all she had was the white tile with the blue "E" which took me back to her desktop IE. Could not find the blue tile with the white "E" which on my Windows 8 is my Metro/Modern UI browser. Is there a way to put back the Modern UI IE? I went under all applications and it wasn't there either. Why would it be obliterated from her system in the first place?

    Hello OrlandoTek,

    Usually the modern IE is not available on Start when Internet Explorer is not set as the default browser. Here are some other items to check as well.

    Thanx for the input. Yeah, she has Firefox installed. It is probably set to the default browser.
