    It seems silly that I can't easily find a way to control iCloud for Windows' behavior. I'd like to change the default browser it uses for opening Mail, Pages, etc. from IE to Chrome. I'd like it to stop it opening them in full screen, too, as that gets pretty annoying on a 34" screen. But I just can't seem to do it. Anyone else have this problem?

    Thanks for that link. Disabled IE 11 and it has mostly worked. iCloud apps now launch in my default browser (Chrome), but they don't actually launch - they all just take me to my iCloud homepage. My guess is that the iCloudWeb.exe application that all the iCloud shortcuts point to is trying to launch IE with IE-specific code that passes both login credentials and the correct URL to the desired iCloud web app. But it won't work in Chrome.
