Internet Explorer starts in Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a new laptop with Windows 8.1. When I start Internet Explorer it goes to the Windows 7 desktop and opens the previous version of Internet Explorer. It opened directly from the start icon previously. I must have changed a setting inadvertently, but I can't figure out what I need to do to change back. Any ideas?

    Please clarify the details by using Help About (or equivalent).  E.g. it sounds like you are getting an IE11 Desktop window when you are expecting a Modern UI Fullscreen (MUF) IE session?  If so, use the Internet Options, Programs tab to choose how you want IE to be launched.  (I'm on W7 now so I don't have the W8.1 UI to confirm the wording with.)
