    IE 10=replaced with MSN!


    Hello - i 'unpined' IE. from taskbar by mistake -then I read directions to get it back to a desktop tile with all other 'tiles' that first load on startup and the tile is back but when i click on that tile it now loads with MSN!- at 'properties' i see MSN /lenovo(computer mfg) showing as homepage. when i try to set it back to I.E. it won't 'take & displays an error message about an error-connection with choice to click to 'fix' but i didn't enough 'clicking' where i shouldn't that caused MSN to show up ! ...so i just clicked on the MSN choice in properties and now that's what loads when i click on IE either in 'tile/desktop' or tasbar ... what happened? is it a serious problem? I do have Google Chrome browser but i don't launch both at same time of course... also do i want to download the latest IE? i'm not totally happy with Google Chrome browser but don't know any others - had Mozella Fire Fox in old computer -always crashing .... thanks in advance.... edythe

    It should, the menus will all be the same for the desktop version of IE.
