INFO: Setting “Desktop IE10” as your default browser over “Modern IE10” in Windows 8

AlwaysOpenIEinDesktopFor those of you that prefer to use the desktop version of Internet Explorer 10 instead of the Modern UI version in the Start Page, you have the option of setting “Desktop IE10” as the default for all hyperlinks clicked throughout the OS.

The one-time task you need to do to set this up is:

  1. Open Desktop IE
  2. Go to Tools/Internet Options
  3. Select the Programs tab
  4. Under "Choose how you open links", choose "Always in Internet Explorer on the desktop"
  5. Select the "Open Internet Explorer tiles on the desktop" checkbox.
