This is a problem I have seen a couple of times. It works like this: When you’re on your Windows 8 Start Screen and click or tap the Internet Explorer tile or a shortcut to a website, the desktop version of Internet Explorer launches rather than the Modern UI version.
This is simple to fix:
First, open Internet Explorer on the desktop, then select the settings cog from the top right
Then select “Internet options”:
Move to the "Programs" tab, then make sure that “Let Internet Explorer decide” is selected from the dropdown box in the “Opening Internet Explorer” section, and that the “Open Internet Explorer tiles on the desktop” checkbox is unchecked.
Press Ok. That’s it, from now on when you tap or click and Internet Explorer tile on the Start Screen it will launch the Modern UI version of Internet Explorer

Please I have my own problem with my new laptop which I bought from PC World less than two moths old. It is an Acer model with windows 8. Despite the fact that I am connected to the wireless connection it is always difficult to stay connected. The connection is always on and off intermittently. The problem is not with the internet provider because I have tried it with different internet providers and is still the same. Please I need help.
Hi Joseph, this isn't the best forum to ask, but I would suggest (this is a personal suggestion, not a Microsoft-official suggestion):
1) Try http://support.microsoft.com/
2) Make sure you have downloaded and installed all Windows updates. Continue to search for updates until no more are found (settings, change PC settings, update & recovery)
3) If this doesn't help it may be a hardware fault, take it back to where you purchased it to see if you have a warranty claim
This started happening right after Conduit search hijacked IE. I fixed the first problem but didn't know MS added the new option. I have noticed this happen before. MS adds all kinds of new options to screens I thought I knew well for years. I just don't think to go back and recheck dialog screens for new stuff. Thanks for knowing it was there and how the symptom would look.
Thank you SOOOOOO much! This problem was starting to get on my last nervous! It took me less then two minutes to fix the problem and I love quick and easy.
Thank you so much! You're a saint.
We cant click on anything in the box. All are grayed out and the "open IE tiles on the desktop" box is checked. ???
