I tried to replicate the described issue locally but to no avail. The filter icon properly appear on my end in IE10 browser on Win8 machine. See the screenshot attached.
If the issue appear with Silk, MetroTouch and BlackMetroTouch skins, this is a known issue which is already logged in our system and a fix will be available in the upcoming SP release.
