Run Windows 8 apps on the desktop

If you have started working on Windows 8, you already know that most of the Windows 8 apps are limited to running on the full screen mode. This can be quite a limitation when it comes to working on different Windows 8 software.

However, with ModernMix, you can run Windows 8 apps on the desktop, just like any other desktop program.

ModernMix was just released by StarDock in the beta version for the public and aims to give Windows 8 users the flexibility to run Windows 8 apps right on the desktop.
