    When you right click in IE 10, what would be the little pin icon is turned into a little menu that you can navigate to your personal user account settings in Eight Fourms! Whoa!

    So I've had this happen again on another site. You need to have the site pinned to your Start Screen and access the site from that pinned tile.

    And that is where it lets you down. Like many, I regularly visit about 10 sites on a regular basis. Last thing I need is another ten icons in my start menu! But I avoid it by having the desktop IE as my default. I open that and use the old top menu favourites.

    This does not work for me either. The pin remains a pin even if it's accessed from a tile pinned to start.
