    Go to Desktop IE10 and click ALT --> Tools --> Compatibility View settings. Now UNCHECK the last checkmark with: "Download updated compatibility list from Microsoft".

    Now you can alter the whitelist located here:

    C:\Users\[USER_NAME]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\IECompatData\iecompatdata.xml

    Open this file and look for these tags:

    <Flash>
    [... the domains are listed here...]
    </Flash>

    Inside these tags all whitelisted (flash-enabled) websites are listed for IE10 Metro. All you do is add your desired website inside these tags as follows:

    <domain>YOURDESIREDDOMAIN.COM</domain>

    Add as many websites as you'd like.

    Now we are almost done, one last task is to delete browsing histroy. Open IE10 Metro and click WIN+I (to open settings) --> Internet Options > Delete browsing history

    Flash is now enabled in IE10 Metro for the websites you have just added.
