I want to create a custom tile which starts Google Mail. I have this script to open Google Mail in IE10:

'File Launcher for Modern Tile Maker

Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")

     objShell.Run """C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iediagcmd.exe""" & ""

'2012 KDapplications\The Windows Club

Google Mail will be opend in Internet Explorer but on the desktop. I want the URL to be opend in IE in the Metro UI. What are the commandline parameters to do this?

Just pin the website to start from internet explorer instead. Start IE in Modern UI and go to Gmail, then press Pin site -> Pin to start in the menu. This should give you the same result, in a much easier way.
