    Metro IE Tile - Home Page


    How do I set a home page for IE with the IE Metro Tile? I don't see an option for that. When I click on the Internet Explorer Tile, I want it to open to a specified Home Page.

    Thanks,
    Brandon

    For the IE App, I just typed in the URL for what ever homepage I wanted at the bottom of the page in the white area, or use the Bing box to search for it. After that go to the right and click on the "pin" to pin down the page.
