Being the first cross-platform OS by Microsoft, Windows 8 features many improvements targeting tablets. The new Metro UI is one of them. While mobile device users are generally happy with the interface, the PC version receives mixed or negative responses due to the focus shifted from productivity and multi-tasking towards modal application execution. Modern apps introduced in Windows 8 run full-screen and require a user to switch to the Start screen to launch them. Obviously, such behavior isn´t ideal for a desktop PC.

Being the first cross-platform OS by Microsoft, Windows 8 features many improvements targeting tablets. The new Metro UI is one of them. While mobile device users are generally happy with the interface, the PC version receives mixed or negative responses due to the focus shifted from productivity and multi-tasking towards modal application execution. Modern apps introduced in Windows 8 run full-screen and require a user to switch to the Start screen to launch them. Obviously, such behavior isn´t ideal for a desktop PC.

New feature in Actual Multiple Monitors fixes that by transforming Modern apps to conventional resizable windows on user's desktop. This way, not only can the user work with multiple Modern apps simultaneously, but also can switch between normal desktop programs and Metro-style applications using habitual modus operandi.

A user can define the way Actual Multiple Monitor should treat Modern apps: open them full-screen or windowed, while the program automatically applies the choice to running apps.

To get more information on this feature, please read the online article " How to Run Windows Store App in a Window on Desktop" (http://www.actualtools.com/multiplemonitors/how-to-run-windows-store-modern-metro-app-in-a-window-on-desktop.shtml).

Just like other programs by Actual Tools, Actual Multiple Monitor is easy to use, lightweight and laconic. Giving the very affordable price and irreplaceable functionality, the program is certainly a good deal for any Windows 8/8.1 user.
