Windows 8 question
Posted 24 August 2013 - 07:10 AM
Ever since, when I access the forums page, a side screen entitled RELATED SEARCHES continues to show, even after shutting it down, with every new forum page I open.
Is this something other users of Windows 8 have experienced, and if so, does anyone know how to remove it?
Thanks in advance,

I only have Vista and Windows 7, so have not experienced this side panel opening up.

Being so computer illiterate as I am, I'm not even sure this annoying intrusion has anything to with Windows 8, per se, or something else about this new PC.

I use Win 8 at work, and saw a million annoying things when using IE via the Metro Tiles, and now always go to the Desktop first, then launch IE, to see things as they were in the good old days of Win 7.
hope this makes sense.

Unusually for me and PC questions, I DO actually understand what you mean!
The problem existed via both Tiles and Desktop access route, but was solved by altering a setting in TOOLS/FILE/SUGGESTED SITES.
Thanks for your help.

My explanation above of how the problem was solved is not completely correct.
Just to clarify, I discovered the permanent solution came about after selecting the IN PRIVATE browsing option, after right-clicking the large blue e Internet Explorer symbol.

THEN you can relearn everything one more time...lol
Actually I am FINALLY "comfortable" using Windows 8
It only took me close to a year .
