However all of the previous bookmarks are stored at the [Desktp]browser level. Attemps to install programs such as Temviewer or LogmeIn result in a proxy error. There is no proxy in use since this is home based system. Various Windows 8 threads show that several folks are having problems with one browser either Metro or Desktop IE not functioning.
