    Whenever I open links in the win 8 email app, the link opens in the internet explorer app. From the app, I can open the page in desktop view. Now is it possible to have the links open directly into desktop view as that is what I would prefer?

    Sure.
    Go to Control Panel. In the top right corner where it says "View by:" use the drop down arrow to change to "Small icons".
    Then click "Internet Options"
    Select the "Programs" tab.
    In the top frame titled Opening Internet Explorer -> Choose how to open links.
    Use the drop down arrow and select "Always in Internet Explorer on the desktop"
