Windows 8 – How to open all links in Desktop Internet Explorer

April 16, 2014 Leave a comment

I thought I’d share a Windows 8 tip with you guys. When you’re using a Modern Application ( like Windows Mail ) , and you click on a Hyperlink , it normally opens it up with Modern Internet Explorer ( like in the image below ).

This is fine when you’re on a tablet ( or in touch mode ). It’s not so great if you’re using a mouse and keyboard. However, there is a setting to change this behaviour.

1) Launch the Desktop Internet Explorer

2) Go to [Tools] , [Internet Options] and then [Programs]

3) Under [Choose how you open links], select [Always in Internet Explorer on the Desktop]

When you go back into a Modern Application and click on a link , it will take you to the Desktop Internet Explorer.
