Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

In Windows 8.1 Pro if you are viewing a metro ("Windows 8") app (such as the Mail or Facebook applications) and you click on a URL, it will automatically open the IE Metro browser in a 50-50 split screen mode (assuming IE is your default browser).

This doesn't seem to work if you use Chrome as your default browser (even when using Chrome "Windows 8 mode").

Does anyone know if there is a way to get this working?

the apps must support this. Report it in the Chromium bugtracker. –  magicandre1981 Oct 20 '13 at 17:59
