Chapter 20. Web Browsing from Your Desktop

Windows 8.1 includes Internet Explorer 11 (IE11), the latest version of Microsoft’s web browser. When you launch IE11 from the Start screen, you are using a touch-optimized version of the browser that has limited support for plug-ins. If you use IE11 from the Windows desktop, however, you have a full-featured web browser that fully supports Adobe Flash, a wider variety of plug-ins, favorites, and other familiar Internet Explorer features. This chapter shows you how to use IE11’s most important features when you run it from the Windows desktop.
