    Hi.

    Are there any touch gestures in Internet Explorer or Edge in Windows 10 yet? I'd like to be able to swipe web pages back and forward in Windows 10 like I'm able to in Windows 8.1 using the MUI version of IE. I mainly use my Surface Pro 3 in tablet mode while surfing.

    If not, are there any plugins or workarounds available?

    Thanks!

    You're not alone, I too miss the touch gestures that were in IE Metro under Win 8.1 I really hop MS brings them back as they were perfect for casual web browsing on the couch.

    I did find this: How to Get Touch Internet Explorer in Windows 10

    I don't know if it works because I rolled back to 8.1 because of the lack of gestures in Win10.

    Based on my experience with both WIN-8 and WIN-10 I think the problem lies in the apps themselves. I regularly go to the NYTimes web site using Chrome. Chrome allow all kind of touch gestures - sliding screen objects horizontally or vertically - almost as smoothly as IOS. Firefox, Edge, Internet Explorer just sit there, dumb and happy. Try nytimes.com using Chrome. You'll see what I mean.
    By the way, the folks that developed Edge didn't understand the concept of Plug-ins.
