open link in windows IE desktop version RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have written code in defaul.html.


    <!DOCTYPE html>
        <meta charset="utf-8" />
        <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="requiresActiveX=true" />


        <!-- WinJS references -->
        <link href="//Microsoft.WinJS.1.0/css/ui-dark.css" rel="stylesheet" />
        <script src="//Microsoft.WinJS.1.0/js/base.js"></script>
        <script src="//Microsoft.WinJS.1.0/js/ui.js"></script>

        <!-- SDATwinApp references -->
        <link href="/css/default.css" rel="stylesheet" />
        <script src="/js/default.js"></script>
        <style type="text/css">
                text-align: center;

                text-align: center;

        <p><a href="http://www.bing.com" target="_blank">Search the web</a></p>

  • You cannot control this at all.  Only the user has the control to decide which IE UI is presented.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.
