    Don't overlook the Snipping Tool which is good for taking images of what's on-screen.

I always resort to Explorer from the desktop because not seeing those options drives me bonkers.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.
    Suggestions:

    1. Don't run IE from the metro start screen (very clumsy no matter how you set it up here IMO); run it from your desktop.
    2. Leave IE as the default browser for "everything" to work smoothly.
    3. Use the Chrome browser from your desktop--if you are not enamored with IE. Reiterating, leave IE as the default.
