    MetroIE 11


    Is it possible to resurrect MetroIE? Right now MS Edge is a mess where it consumes far more CPU, battery and RAM on my RAM limited tablet. I'm currently using desktop IE and everything is great there except the page does not scroll up when using the popup keyboard, therefore blocking the message box at the bottom so you don't see what you type! Hope someone can accomplish this.

    In Tablet Mode? I just scrolled PG UP and PG DN using on-screen keyboard.
    It worked ok on this non-touch device.

    About the closest to MetroIE in 10 would be Tablet Mode IE.
    I LOVE the Metro IE. ... use it all the time when not in 10.

    You're using the "classic" on screen keyboard not the new keyboard from the touch which is what pops up in tablet mode. MetroIE and Edge will move the page up so nothing is blocked while desktop IE (due to desktop programs not being "touch aware") won't so On screen keyboard blocks it!

    See screenshot below to know what I mean. FYI, on screen keyboard is popping down while taking the screenshot so you get the idea when it's fully poped up.

    My only gripe is if MS Edge has Metro IE gestures and is efficient as MetroIE, My experience would be awesome! Windows 10 clearly ruined my exclusive tablet experience!
