Default browser mode with IE10?

    Question

  • I know I'm probably in the wrong forum, but could someone help me?

    I'm running the Windows 8 Developer Preview, and I would like to make IE10's DEFAULT browser mode to be IE9. I can change it with F12, but it always goes back to IE10 browser mode when I restart the browser. Is there any way to make IE10 start up running with IE9 browser mode? thanks!

  • MAScodes,

    Here is steps to change the option to have links to open in Desktop instead in Metro style.

    1. Run Metro Internet Explorer 10.
    2. Press Win + i
    3. click on "Default view for links"
    4. click on Yes for Do you want links opening in desktop?

  • I am not sure if you could install IE9 on Windows CTP or not.

    If you want to change default browser, change this registry.

     

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\http\shell\open\command]

  • You cannot install Internet Explorer 9 in place of Internet Explorer 10 on Windows Developer Preview.
    When trying to install, the system states, Internet Explorer 9 is already installed on this computer.

    Thanks,
