  • I have been unable to get Flash apps to work in the Metro UI Internet Explorer, but they do work in the Desktop view Internet Explorer.

    Has anyone else experienced this issue ?

  • this is by design. Metro IE doesn't support plugins:

    For the web to move forward and for consumers to get the most out of touch-first browsing, the Metro style browser in Windows 8 is as HTML5-only as possible, and plug-in free.
