why activeX is not working in start screen of Ie in windows 8 enabled samsung device?
ActiveX is a software component of Microsoft Windows. ActiveX is already installed on your Samsung notebooks if Internet Explorer is installed. ActiveX controls are small programs, sometimes called add-ons that are used on the Internet. They can enhance your browsing experience by allowing animation or they can help with tasks such as installing security updates at Microsoft Update.
Reason when ActiveX is not working in the Start screen of Internet Explorer :
● When you visit a site that uses an ActiveX control, Internet Explorer asks if you want to install the ActiveX control. You can then choose to install the ActiveX control or learn about the risks. Click Don't run if you do not trust the website and publisher.
● The Start screen Internet Explorer complies with HTML5, a standard web protocol which doesn’t support ActiveX, while the Desktop Internet Explorer does support ActiveX.
● In order to use ActiveX, select 'View on the Desktop' avialable in Tool button. The current webpage will be switched to the Desktop IE browser.
