Description
Even after installing the Desktop Experience feature, clicking the Internet Explorer icon in the Start screen will result in starting Internet Explorer on the classic desktop. In Windows 8, starting Internet Explorer via the Start screen opens the Metro version of Internet Explorer 10.

Solution
Import the registry file provided by Allukend.

As it's possible to customize any links in Metro to launch Desktop applications and applets; I wonder if in the case of Server 2012 this is just registration errors, or, if the Metro IE 10 is just not installed? The Windows 8 RTM Metro IE 10 is very limited with respect to what it offers in security settings so it may have been left out of Sever 2012, or just not installed.

Also on a related note; in the Developer Preview and Consumer Preview releases if you installed any Metro app or applet, there was a screen in the Microsoft Store where it was added so you could reinstall it later -- I don't see this functionality now in Windows 8 or Server 2012 RTM, and I haven't been able to find how you reinstall Metro apps in the RTM builds yet -- but where ever they're stashed that may be where you go to get the Metro IE going in Server 2012...
