How to launch immersive IE? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I am trying to call this (LaunchDefaultProgram) method yet it doesn't exist. Also, it seems I can launch the metro IE from metro application only if it is my default browser. Am I right?

  • Hi ynahmany,

    The thread you were posting on was from prerelease Windows 8 and the specific methods have changed.

    For released versions of Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 see How to launch the default app for a URI .

    This will launch the URI in the user's default browser and browser mode. There is no way for the app to launch the URI in a specific browser or browser mode.
