The new IE interface takes a little getting used to. I can see it’s value for the slate market, but for the desktop market it is a little hard to get out of. Take a look below.
It is not obvious how to get out of this mode in a desktop.
Click the page icon at the bottom of the browser and then click Use Desktop View.
Windows 8 will switch to the Desktop and place the webpage you were on in the windows mode you are accustomed to.
