I upgraded both my laptop and my girlfriends from win 7 home premium to windows 8 pro on Saturday. Although mine has worked perfectly I can't find the IE10 metro app on hers. It was never on the home screen after the upgrade and I can't find it when searching for apps on the home screen or in the windows store. IE10 is definitely installed, it works through the desktop but I cant get the metro app anywhere. Does anyone have any ideas?

you can use the search charm on the right hand side of screen and type it in, when it comes up right click and Pin it to start, or you can also right click on the metro tile screen and in bottom right it will say show all apps, find it there and again right click on app and pin to start

Yeah, even if I right click on the home screen and click all apps internet explorer is not listed. I tried to set IE10 as the default through default programs and internet explorer doesn't show on the list. If I try to set it from the tools tab in desktop IE10 the set associations button but it does nothing when I click it.

Hello n1ch077, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Double check using the tutorial below to make sure that Internet Explorer is enabled to be listed in Default Programs.

Afterwards, set Internet Explorer to be the default program of all of it's associations to see if the IE10 Metro version will return to the Start screen.


If still not, then check in "All Apps" to see if IE10 Metro is there to be able to "Pin to Start".

Hope this helps, :)
