Remove chrome icons completely from the desktop, Taskbar and then go into Internet options (via control panel) and make IE the default browser again.
Now you should find that metro IE is enabled again.
To get chrome on the desktop again, find the chrome icon, right click it and pin to the task bar. When you click on the chrome tab in the taskbar you'll get a prompt (this prompt relates to metro only and not default browser). Make sure you choose IE otherwise this will place chrome in metro again so watch for this prompt especially. (note, this will not make chrome the default browser and whilst you can use it on the desktop etc, if anything like a link wants to open a browser then of course it will open IE. Just be ready for that)
A variation of what you suggested got me back where I want to be.
I uninstalled Google Chrome, removes all the icons from everywhere, and then I downloaded it in Internet Explorer and re-installed it. I then removed all the icons on the Start page.
I opened it from the desktop and when it asked me if I wanted to make it the default browser I said yes.
Now when I open it from the desktop it's fine.
I won't have any icons on the start page so I won't make the mistake of opening it from there again.
I think that's what got me into this mess to start with.
You got it, Mike; that's what I meant. But, what I don't follow... is I have Chrome, as well as IE10, but, no APP for it, only the desktop browser. I rarely use Chrome but, I do have it. No Win8 Store APP, though.
I, also, have FF but, only as a desktop browser, no Store APP.
