Windows 8 gives you two versions of IE, one for Desktop and the other for Metro UI. But for File Manager, it only gives you the Desktop version so far.

If you don't like to switch between Desktop and Metro too often just to look for a file, then try this app Metro Commander, the Metro version of File Manager, a third party app.

Default Firefox Metro Preview for Windows 8

Available for testing now if you're running 64-bit Win8: https://blog.mozilla.org/futurerelea...metro-preview/

"If a browser does not support Metro, it is seriously at risk of losing the default browser status, and therefore significant market share." - says Brian's Blog at Status Update 3
