Solved Creating IE9 short cuts on Windows 8 desk top

September 18, 2013 at 23:15:37
Specs: Windows 8
Not sure if it is the Windows 8 system or the Internet Explorer 9 but when I right click on an open web page I can no longer see an option to create a short cut on the desk top. Is there a new way?

If you create a shortcut to IE10 on the desktop it will have the feature you asked for.
It will look like the old style (with the various buttons along the top, back and forward buttons etc). If you particularly want run this new shortcut on the modern Start screen then just call it "IE Desktop", or whatever, to distinguish it from the new look version.

Maybe it's me but I just don't get on with the new Internet Explorer in the Start menu.
I find it too restrictive.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I thought Win8 came with IE10?

You are right. My fault . It is version 10. Maybe that is the problem.
