    Some things work in metro IE, some things do not

    I installed W8CP on an old notebook and gave it to my 13 year old daughter..
    She loves it!

    One thing: we noticed works fine in the normal
    IE on the desktop, but does NOT work with the metro IE.. Not sure why..

    Is there any way to get wizard101 working and pinnable?

    EDIT: also, how do you see a history of links in metro IE?
    In regular IE you click and hold the backbutton.. but
    holding the backbutton in metro IE seems to do nothing..
