    Anyone notice that you can't click on hover-over links on Surface RT? There are a few websites that I use regularly that have hover-over links (menus that you hover over and sub-menus appear). When I press the hover over, the sub-menu appears, but the second I let go of the button, the sub-menu disappears.

    I tested on my old iPad 1 and when you press the hover-over button, the sub-menu appears and stays there, so you can click on the options.

    Has anyone else experienced this, and is there a solution or work-around? The desktop IE does the same thing, so not just Metro IE10.

    Thanks!

    pulling out your touch cover and using your touch pad to hover over is one way.

    However, if you don't have a cover... :-)

    Then you can't hover ;) Hey, that rhymed!
    But seriously, that seems to be the only way. Sorry.
