    Strange problem


    Hello all,

    This is my first post.

    I successfully upgraded my OS from Windows 7 to Windows 8 Pro.

    I chose the import my data and settings.

    Now when I am choosing Google Chrome which was imported from Win 7, I am getting a win7 layout.

    When I boot up, I get the Win 8 tiles layout but as soon as I click on Chrome, I start getting Win 7 layout.

    Whats the matter?

    Help would be appreciated.

    Regards

    EDIT : Also tried clicking IE and same thing happening.

    Hello there and welcome!

    Are you talking about when you open google chrome, it opens in the Windows 7 styled Desktop versus the full screen immersive Internet Explorer 10?

    If my understanding is correct, every time you open an appwhich is not a windows 8 app, the desktop will open first with the opened appon top. When you open a Win 8 app, the desktop will not open. Someone feel freeto correct me if I'm wrong.

    Google install 2 versions, the Desktop one and the Metro one, just make sure to use the Metro one if you don't want to see the desktop

    I think Chrome actually has a context menu in the corner that lets you Relaunch in Metro Mode, or something similar. See if that helps.

    Thanks a lot.

    Is there any setting by which we can make it possible to launch all apps start in Metro mode?

    Thanks
