    It seems after the Windows update the other day, IE Metro won't work. The Metro IE button opens IE in desktop. Anyone else have this problem?

    It usually means you have other browser than IE set as default.

    Metro IE can only be used if IE is the default browser. Annoying, I know.

    Are you sure that IE is still the default browser? IE metro won't launch if some other browser (Firefox/Chrome/Opera) is the default program.

    Spot on RazzNuts, that's exactly what it was. Somehow Chrome got set to default. Many thanks!

    Pretty humorous if Microsoft's Windows Updates are setting Google Chrome as the default browser. ;)
