Internet Explorer 11 To Support Swiping

From Immersive to Desktop.

As more and more people get their hands on the recently leaked build of Windows 8 (codenamed Blue), Rafael Rivera from WithinWindows has discovered a neat hidden feature, which brings IE10 Immersive (aka Metro) swipe gesture to IE11 Desktop.

What is this swipe functionality all about? It’s simple: you can now swipe horizontally to move back and forth between your browsing history, which sure is a welcome change although we are not sure why would anyone use IE11 Dekstop on their touch PC or a Tablet. While it’s not enabled by default yet, head over to

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\DesktopSwipe and set the Enabled value to 1.
