Why didn't Microsoft do this!
Really good heads up Mike. I downloaded the 30 day trial and it actually works. I have been moaning in the Microsoft pages about this lacking feature, without any intelligent response.
This sets Windows 8 as my number one OS, now, for sure. I quickly slapped in four games (Modern Apps) and opened them on the desktop. How about this:
Really, if you combine this with Start8, again from Stardock, you seldom have to look at the Start Screen again since the Modern UI apps are located in a folder on the Start Menu... Well, this is the solution for desktop users for sure. Until they try to eliminate the desktop completely.
Here's a large screenshot with some testing of Start8 and ModernMix:
Well I got gifted those 2 pieces of software....let me tell you....It makes all the difference. I can't believe how smoothly they work. I'm with you guys, I hope MS does incorporate with blue...if not...many many thanks to my gifter.
that's the reason in itself... the Microsoft Answers community is ridiculous. This is great news though for anyone who prefers the conventional desktop. Personally when Blue introduces the ability to have metro apps running on more than one screen, I'll be happy enough.
