    Through this way, you can set your Internet Explorer 10 as Default browser in Windows 8...

    Step 1:
    Launch the start screen and search for internet options. Click on the icon Internet Options under Settings section to launch Internet Explorer properties windows.

    Step 2: In the properties window navigate to the Programs tab and select Always in Internet Explorer on the Desktop from the dropdown menu under the Opening Internet Explorer section and save the settings.

    Itís not a hard and fast rule that you have to select the desktop version.
    If you think that the Metro UI interface suits you better you may continue with it as the default version of Internet Explorer 10 on Windows 8.

    Thanks and have a great time ahead.
