  • Hi,

    I'm sorry for couldn't understand your means.

    Actually, there is no option in registry and GP for us to disable this option. Metro IE is an APP in windows 8, and it's setting was integrated, just like other APPS,  it's API isn't public. we couldn't make any change on Windows level.

    You can try the method below.

    Open Internet opinions->Programs.

    Then choose "Always open in Internet Explorer" in How do you open link option.

  • I know very well the option you mentioned. Even checking that option a user is able to launch the desktop version of IE 11 going on Page tools and clicking on "View on the desktop".

    I want to completely prevent the user to be able to launch the desktop version of IE 11.

    Thanks

    Regards

  • Remove the RequiresActiveX=true x-ua from your pages or server response headers.

    Post questions about html css and scripting for website developers to the MSDN IE Web Development forum with a link to your website.

    the IE Developer documentation can be found here

  • Rob, my question has nothing to do with developing a website. I simply want to know if there is a way to completely disable the option to launch the desktop version of IE 10/11 from the modern IE 10/11 apps.

    Regards
