Solved Internet Explorer desktop problem

IE in desktop taskbar opens but does not display on screen. When you hover over it in taskbar it shows thumbnail of home page opened. Right click shows either maximise or minimise. Click maximise and nothing happens.
All other items in taskbar like Windows word open okay.
From Metro screen opening IE is okay. Using Shawn's forum tutorial on how to then switch from IE open in Metro to desktop just gives you the page thumbnail when you hover over the IE in taskbar.
IE was working okay from desktop on a higher resolution screen(1920x1080 native) but I needed that screen for another PC and changed to a screen that only supports a maximum resolution of 1680 x 1050 native.
Windows 8 booted okay and I have changed the system settings for the screen to this resolution. Everything seems okay except this inability for IE to actually open up in the desktop screen. I have tried setting to a slightly lower resolution but that made no difference.
Any suggestions appreciated.
Thanks
Steve
