    Internet Explorer is not in App list (yet still works)




    This is weird. I use Firefox as my main browser (but have Internet Explorer as default browser so I can stay in touch mode in Metro Apps), but now I can't launch Internet Explorer directly!
    It's not listed in the apps list, and search doesn't pull it up. Yet Programs and Features says it's still installed and I can launch it by clicking on a link on the desktop or another app.

    I have it pinned to the taskbar now, but How do i bring it back into the start screen?

    Thanks.
