Possible Duplicate:
How do I force all links to open in the Desktop browser?

I installed chrome, and now I have 2 ways to open chrome: if I open chrome from the metro-tile menu, I get the full-screen, immersed, windows-8 style chrome. If I start the link I got on my desktop, I get the windowed version.

Apart from the fact that I would like to know how I might do that on purpose, I also want to know what's going on so I can use the windowed version (I prefer that for a browser) from all links I have, especially the one in the menu.

The second half of your question has already been asked: How do I force all links to open in the Desktop browser? – Bob Oct 27 '12 at 16:16
Bob: That question addresses only IE10, not Chrome. – Trevor Sullivan Oct 27 '12 at 17:31
@TrevorSullivan The current answer is about IE. The question, from the start, has been about browsers in general with Firefox Elm, IE10 and Chrome all used as examples. (Also, please use @name to ping someone about the reply) – Bob Oct 27 '12 at 17:34

From chrome help pages,

Due to system limitations, only plug-ins using Pepper API, such as Flash, Native Client, and Chrome PDF Viewer will function properly when Chrome runs as a Windows 8 app.

Plugins like Java will not work in immersed mode

I am wondering the same thing 0_o – HackToHell Oct 27 '12 at 16:23
Maybe because it doesn't have direct bearing on the question. It wasn't me. – user3463 Oct 27 '12 at 17:16
