    Thanks, John. That would be swell.

    Thanks again. IE is the only browser loaded and used. I’ll have to see what the problem is. Any ideas?

    No, Tepid. Those tiles are pinned IE shortcuts. There is no app for 8F. There is for 9F that was created by Kari, though.

    My apology that I gave misinformation here. There is an 8F app for Android and iPhone, but none for Windows phone. I simply use IE for the forums.

    My tile turned into the 8F colored icon today and is no longer live.
