    Internet Explorer only works on the Desktop in Windows 8

    I am using Windows 8 in my System. Whenever I try to open Internet Explorer in any of the Metro Functions, it does not work. It works only on the Desktop. What might be the Problem and what is the Solution to Solve the Problem?

    Internet Explorer opening only on Desktop and not in any Metro Functions means, you might have set the settings that Internet Explorer should open in such a way. You can change the Settings as Simple as such.

    Move to the Internet Options.
    Tap on the “Programs” Tab.
    Check whether the Option “OPen Internet Explorer on the Desktop” under “Internet Explorer”.
    You need to Check it.
    Click “Apply”.
    Click “Ok”.
