    Flash and IE10 Metro?


    Can't install Flash in IE10 Metro version. Just seems to go to the 'desktop' version.
    Any ideas?

    Try this version of flashplayer:
    Latest Version of Adobe Flash Player

    I haven't tried but worked for Airbot.

    IE 10 for Metro is plugin free, so there it has no Flash Support. It doesn't bother me because Flash has outlived itself and the sooner it's buried the better.

    That doesn't help to access a large amount of content on the BBC site, I'm afraid. One of the busiest sites in the world! We live in the present and what happens to Flash in the future is irrelevant.

    OK. So just access what's necessary for you through the regular desktop IE? What's the problem there?

    It's not a 'problem', just a pain swapping back and fore between apps depending on the content of the sites being visited. Awkward and loss of continuity.

    I'm sure no one can argue with you there on that point.
