    I got used to the Metro version of IE in Windows 8.1 and actually like it. Now, in Windows 10, I can't find any way to get that look and feel. Is there any way to get that Windows 8.1 Metro version of IE in Windows 10?

    Thanks for any help.

    Actually as it is now, Edge is basically the Modern version of IE. Once addons work with Edge, it will distinguish itself from IE.
    Edge doesn't work with alot of websites now, though.

    No, Edge is your metro Internet Explorer. I'm afraid there is no way to get the Metro IE on Windows 10 apart from to make a VM running Windows 8.1.

    Thanks for the reply. I will give Edge a try.

    Rats! Well then, is there any way to show Favorites as icons rather than the vanilla list?

    Thanks, Jim
