Okay so on my computer, there's 2 versions of Chrome. The browser/desktop based Chrome and the Windows 8 system "full screen" Chrome. How can I get rid of the Windows 8 system "full screen" chrome? I like the regular one better.

Just unpin it from your start screen, don't think you can uninstall it or don't make Chrome your default browser.

If you want to keep Chrome for desktop mode but use IE on the Start screen just set the default browser back to IE.

Cool, thanks for that.

I think Microsoft should sync both desktop and start screen apps to work together.

Yeah thanks for that as well but I like the desktop version much better.
