    IE11 Metro Stuck on Webpage, unusable


    Hey Guys,

    New to the forums, thanks for taking time to read my thread

    So the metro version of IE11 on my Surface tablet is stuck on a webpage. I accidentally clicked through to one of those annoying ad pages that asks if "are you sure you want to leave this page?" (I don't know why that is even possible to program in, its incredibly annoying) Anyway, I'm stuck in a loop where it just keeps asking the question. I tried shutting IE down in task manager but it just reboots to the same page. How/should I set IE to boot to a homepage instead of last page visited? Any solutions would be very helpful.

    Thanks again and Happy Holidays!

ow IE11 metro mode in Browsers & Mail
HI. This is bout why IE11 in metro mode is so slow going backwards. I have a Surface RT 8.1. I use IE11 both in metro mode and on the desktop. Because I have a comparatively slow broadband (2.5 at best) I am used to many websites taking a few seconds to load. That's ok. On the desktop version...
