How do I restore an icon to the Desktop Taskbar - IE


  • Okay, I installed Firefox and then removed the Desktop IE 10 icon from the taskbar. How do I go about restoring it back to the taskbar. If I click on IE on the Metro screen it starts Metro IE. I want Desktop IE.

    This is all very confusing to me. I can't imagine what Microsoft must be thinking with this entire Metro mess.

  • Hey Wolfpack Fan,

    To replace the Internet Explorer Shortcut.

    1. From the Metro apps Click on Desktop.
    2. Right Click on the Desktop and select New and Shortcut from the menu.

    3. Click on Browse.
    4. Navagate to c:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore and click OK.

    5. Click Next and Finish.

    6. Drag the finished Shortcut to the task bar.
