Microsoft has introduced Internet Explorer 10. It is fast and fluid. Everything you want to do on the web is a swipe or a tap away, and feels instant. Browser tabs and navigation controls appear only when you need them and quietly get out of the way when you don’t.
Quickly find sites by pinning them to your Start screen—or add a site to your favorites and access it from anywhere in Internet Explorer. Enjoy reading your news online? Turn on flip ahead to smoothly move from page to page on supported sites.
With Internet Explorer 10, you can quickly switch between tabs and access your favorite sites.
Get started with Internet Explorer 10
With Internet Explorer 10 you might notice something different about the web—it’s bigger, bolder, and optimized for touch. Tabs, buttons, and toolbars are now easily accessible when you need them, but quietly get out of the way when you don't. By learning a few simple actions, you'll be able to comfortably use your new browser.
Find your Address bar
If you're looking for your Address bar, open Internet Explorer and swipe down from the top (or right-click). The Address bar appears at the bottom of your screen and the Tabs bar appears at the top.
Tap or click the Address bar and Internet Explorer displays your Frequent, pinned, and favorite sites so you can jump to the site you want in an instant. Or, enter a web address or search term in the Address bar. As soon as you start typing,Internet Explorer shows results that match sites you've previously visited, pinned sites and favorites, or sites you might like.
Change your home page
Set up a home page so every time you launch Internet Explorer 10 you can go straight to the site you use the most.
You'll need to restart Internet Explorer and Internet Explorer in the desktop to see your new home page. You can change your home page at any time, or set up multiple home pages that will open in separate tabs.
Navigate with tabs
The Tabs bar shows sneak peeks of the webpages you already have open. One-touch controls let you easily open a new tab, close tabs, or switch between tabs. Open an InPrivate tab by tapping or clicking the Tab tools button . You can also quickly close all the tabs you have open (except the one you're on) by tapping or clicking Close tabs.
Flip ahead through sites
Whether you enjoy reading the news with your morning latte, or relaxing with a lengthier article after work, turning on flip ahead makes going from page to page and article to article more fluid. Let's say you're reading an article on a news site that supports flip ahead. You can swipe across the page (or click the Forward button ) to go to the next page of content.
From the Settings charm, tap or click Internet Options to turn on flip ahead.
Your web favorites
Internet Explorer 10 lets you choose how you want to keep track of your favorite sites, so you can get to those sites faster. There are three ways to store and organize your favorites:
Sites you love: Pinned and favorites
Pinning a site creates a tile on your Start screen, giving you one-touch access to that site. Some pinned sites will show notifications, so you know when new content is available. You can pin as many sites as you like, and organize them into easy-to-manage groups. From the Address bar, tap or click Pin site , and then tap or click Pin to Start.
If you have a lot of sites to keep track of, you can create a favorites list. When you add a site to your favorites, it appears in the Address bar and in your favorites list in Internet Explorer for the desktop. From the Address bar, tap or click Pin site , and then tap or click Add to favorites.
See if your site has an app
Some websites give you the option of getting their app. Like a pinned site, a web app gives you instant access and a new way to experience the site's content. You can snap an app to view it side-by-side with sites in Internet Explorer. To get an app, from the Address bar, tap or click Page tools , and then tap or click Get an app for this site.
Help protect yourself with Internet Explorer 10
Socialize, shop, study, share, work—these are all things you probably do daily on the web that might make your personal information available to other people. Internet Explorer 10 helps protect you with better behind-the-scenes security and more control over your privacy.
Keep your browsing more private
There are a few simple things you can do that will keep your PC and your information more protected.
Browse InPrivate. Browsers store info like your search history to help improve your experience. When you use an InPrivate tab, you can browse like you normally do, but things like passwords, search history, and webpage history is deleted when you close the tab. Open a new InPrivate tab by tapping or clicking the Tab tools button , and then tapping or clicking New InPrivatetab.
Delete your browsing history. From the Settings charm, tap or click Internet Options, and then tap or click Delete. This clears webpage history, any saved passwords, temporary files, and cookies that have been collected as you browse.
Browse with confidence
SmartScreen Filter and the Do Not Track header are easily enabled in Internet Explorer 10.
Do Not Track header. The Do Not Track header sends a signal to websites that you prefer not to have information collected about your visit used to track you as you browse the web. How the sites you visit choose to respond or interpret Do Not Track requests is subject to those sites' privacy practices.
SmartScreen Filter. If a site seems suspicious, you probably shouldn't be downloading apps from it or providing your account or personal information. But sometimes it's hard to tell whether or not a site is legitimate. SmartScreen helps you identify reported phishing and malware sites and also helps you make informed decisions about app downloads.
