I have read that the dev build of Google Chrome can work in metro style in win 8 if it is the dev build, is the default browser, and is pinned to start. I did all that, and it is starting in desktop mode, even when I start it from the start menu. I am using version 24.0.1312.2 dev-m or Google Chrome and Windows 8 Pro. What can I do to make Chrome open as a Metro App?
If Chrome's set to default and still doesn't launch in Metro mode, despite opening it from the Start Screen then you'll have to instruct Chrome to open in Windows 8 Mode.
To do this, Click on the Chrome menu and select "Relaunch in Windows 8 Mode"
