Windows 8 / IE 10 - do not track - EE does not work well but everything else is GREAT

EE display is messy and BACK does not work

However I will accept the compromise.

IE10 is BLAZINGLY fast.

Windows 8 is super clean - no clutter - no eye candy - no need to get a new graphic card, probably you can get the one you used for XP out!

Pro has the desktop, you will take 10 minutes to adapt.

EE might take longer

In my Windows 8 / IE 10, the display is a bit messy here and there, but not bad. The Back Button *does* work - I use it.

Go to Tools, Compatability View Settings and add experts-exchange.com to the Compatability View box. Then down below, uncheck (de-select) the box that says Download Updated Compatability Lists from Microsoft.  Then it should work better.

Also make sure you are using a modern resolution monitor as that will help.

I run Windows 8 in a Virtual Machine. The VM is windowed (not full-screen) and the display is 1024x768. E-E has some display overlap errors in that resolution, at least for IE 10.

can you use the Bold, Italic and other items in the post a comment section (I can't with IE10) (full not the Metro version) and yes the display is messed up
sample of messed up page
back/forward buttons work without a hitch.

well EE is not fixed yet, but it is useable if not beautiful so we can let this go.

I'm using dual 23" monitors. It's not a quality problem.
I don't really want to keep having to put things in compatibility mode. IE10 has been in beta for ages now.

@carolchi - Thanks. Maybe Microsoft will improved Windows 8 and IE10 before final release.

As far as I know the version I am using (MSDN RTM) is the final version.
