By default, the Start and Apps screens on Windows 8 are set to open Internet Explorer in Metro Mode. However, if User Account Control is turned off on your computer, Windows 8 will not open Internet Explorer in Metro mode. Therefore, if you try to open an HTML shortcut from the Start or Apps screen, such as the UFT Help or Readme file, an error will be displayed.
To solve this, you can change the default behavior of Internet Explorer so that it never opens in Metro mode. In the **Internet Properties** dialog box,**Programs** tab, select **Always in Internet Explorer** on the desktop in the **Choose how you open links** option.
