    Yes - That's why I stopped using it, I use flash on my Band website, and it can't be viewed in the IE Tile
    I don't use the Metro IE for various reasons but I still use the desktop version. I seem to remember having to install flash for that version manually.

    Flash for IE in Windows 8 is included by MS. You can not install it. Flash for other browsers in Windows 8 can be installed. In IE-10 if ActiveX Filtering under Tools is checked it will block Flash on a lot of sites including Adobe's flash site.
