    I have issues on the forums when using ie 11 in metro on my Surface RT. Any time I respond to a thread or PM it will stop responding to taps or clicks on links buttons etc. The desktop version works perfectly. Any tips on getting this working properly?

    Same here. Although I haven't use my surface on this site(I am usually using Wpcentral app for this site), other forums including my own have a hard time with IE 11. As much as I like 8.1 i kind of wish i didn't ever upgrade simply because it is just an awful experience if you need to reply to something.

    Here's what I did....

    1. Hit the FN button
    2. Click Tools(I think)
    3. Choose compatibility view and add this site(and other sites if you have other issues) to the list in compatibility view
    4. Hit okay
    5. Page should refresh

    I think the issue is with forums is that IE 11 can't handle the rich text editor but you can use the forum's Basic Text editor(An editor without all the formatting buttons at the top) instead

    I don't even have 8.1 and I'm having these problems lately. This didn't happen before and this is the only site that's doing it. I use my Surface at night while watching tv with my wife. It's practically impossible to do basic things much less other tasks I have to do. This is getting very frustrating.

    Does switching to compatibility view help?

    Same thing whether compatibility view is on or off.

    Well then. I'm going to report this thread and one other to tech to see if there's anything they can do. IE 11 isn't playing nice!
