Modern Mix from Stardock


Senior Member
I am using a trial version of Star8, and I received an email introducing Modern Mix. I would like to share with you.

One of the features that interests me most is "multi-tasking".

Win 8.1 by default runs an app in full screen.
Modern Mix fixes that and now one can run multiple apps, just like in Win 7.

It is not free but dirt cheap.
I don't know if I am allowed to post a link to it. I don't want to be accused of spamming.
You can google for it if interested. There is a video demo if you have the right website.

I posted on the program several months ago, and there are some posts/threads about it, including one mentioning its advantages, from Mike:

I am running it in Windows 8.1 RTM, with which it is totally compatible.
It is a stardock program, who are reliable.

They're both great products...I have them both on my laptop (which turned into the family laptop) running 8 Pro....I'd recommend them and for $5 each you can't be that.
