Sections on my screen - a Win8 app is either the entire screen, the right sliver, or the left sliver. I can't make it like 1/4 or 1/2.
The example is when I am skyping, and I would like to be doing other things in other windows/sections and I'm limited to the above.
I reviewed the s/w and it doesn't say that it is Win8 compliant.
I guess I was hoping that there was a native way to do it. I have seen on Win8 tablets that they are able to control/manage/position 1/2 of the display screen and was hoping it was some type of setting or configuration that would allow it.
It doesn't work for the Win8 apps. I have no trouble controlling the normal non-Win8 apps.
Any other clues?
When I run a Win8 app from the Win8 start menu - like Skype, it will either take the right sliver, about 1/5 of the right side of the screen, the left sliver, about 1/5 of the screen, the whole screen, or all the screen but the right or left sliver.
The program you had me install doesn't affect the Win8 app - on the other ones.
Thanks Jason. I appreciate the effort.
I have been searching for the past 2 weeks for the Win8 apps to be able to have more than the sliver, but not the whole screen.

Please do not rate this session until it has been completed.The Metro interface doesn't really let you define Window locations right now. However, you can use a utility that will run the Windows 8 app on the Windows 8 desktop instead of the Metro (start screen) interface which will then allow you to resize, move, minimize or do whatever you like with those running apps.It's called ModernMix and it is written specifically for Windows 8 by StarDock. You can download a trial of it here: http://www.stardock.com/products/modernmix/Or if you'd prefer to see a video of it in action, you can see that here: Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
This program certainly helps me manage and control the size of the Win8 apps. I also downloaded the Win8.1 upgrade, and it also allows me to control the size of the app - but not to the extent that ModernMix does.
