Adding and removing favorites in the Internet Explorer 10 app on the Windows Start Screen is not the same as we have grown used to with the desktop version. Unlike the desktop Internet Explorer, the Internet Explorer app does not keep its favorites organized in folders. Instead the favorites are shown as a ribbon of sites that you can scroll through to find the site you want to visit. This tutorial will explain how to add and remove favorites from the Internet Explorer 10 Start Screen app.
