    You should be able to go to the Store, search for the app and reload it. It should indicate you already own the app - you just need to reinstall it. I did this with numerous apps when I switched app storage to my SD card.

    If it was the office 2013 your only choice may be a Restore. Any "APP" on the system should be found in the Store, Try the My Apps option and it will only show what you have or have had on your Surface.

    Just to be sure, are you logged into the Windows store? You need to be logged in to see your apps.

    Edit: Or try these fixes.

    Unable to install Internet Explorer app in Windows 8? - Super User

    Edit 2: I can't even get IE to uninstall from the Start Screen using the standard tickle, uninstall from the bottom bar. What method did you use to uninstall?

    Start, type Windows Features, check Internet Explorer. You can't really uninstall it, it just turned off.

    I'm confused (I know that easy to do). You deleted IE from your RT then expected to run Chrome?
