ModernMix – Run Modern (Metro) apps in a window on your desktop with ModernMix™

By | March 13, 2013

ModernMix is a  program that lets you run Windows® 8 “Modern” apps in a window on the desktop.

Windows 8 Modern apps, also known as Metro or RT apps, will use the full screen on your display regardless of how much of the screen they really need.

As a result, that weather app, mail program or stock ticker is going to use the entirety of your computer display.
