Windows 8 – How to make (Metro) Internet Explorer the default browser


Windows 8 Logo

If you make another browser the default in Windows 8 you will notice that the Internet Explorer tile on the Start Screen now takes you to the desktop version of Internet Explorer (rather than opening the Windows Store version of Internet Explorer).

To make Internet Explorer the default again follow these steps:

  • On the Start Screen type Default Programs and then click on the Default Programs tile.
  • Click the Set your default programs link.
  • Select Internet Explorer from the list of programs.
  • Click Set this program as default, and then click OK.
