  • I got an error message "please close ActiveX Filtering" when I login Office365 with metro IE on window 8. But I could not find a way to close it. Anybody can tell me?

  • There is no ActiveX support in metro IE. Office 365 needs to take that into account and update their error message. 

    For the time being, use the desktop version of IE.

  • Open Internet Explorer on the desktop.
    Click on Safety at the top of page on right hand side.
    Scroll to Active X Filtering and unselect it.

    Let us know if this helps in Metro IE as well.

     

    Thanks,
