ModernMix - Run Windows 8 apps in windowed mode
Review by on
A particular aspect that makes Windows 8 a bit uncomfortable is the fact that apps are launched in full screen mode. Even if you place them on half of the screen, it is not the same as running them on windows, which can be moved anywhere on the screen and minimized to the task bar. ModernMix gives you the possibility of running modern Metro apps in windowed mode. The application provides many other useful features as well. It allows you to decide which apps should be launched in full screen or windowed mode and you can set it to force the windows to a certain size, create desktop shortcuts and make other settings, to make Windows 8 feel more like previous versions.

You can evaluate ModernMix for 30 days, without any functionality restrictions. Downloading and installing the application is quite easy and it takes less than a minute to complete the operation. The application doesn't have any significant impact on a computer's performance and it doesn't ask for any additional tools.

The available customization options are organized on separate pages, which can be accessed via navigation tabs, located on the left side of the user interface. You can set ModernMix to run apps in full screen or in a window, which can be maximized by default if you want to. Also, apps can be displayed differently, if you launch them from the Start screen or via desktop shortcuts.

ModernMix can also show full screen apps on the task bar and disable the animated flip when you launch them. Furthermore, you can limit the size of the windows, add an option for creating desktop shortcuts in the Windows right click menu and decide if you want to return to the Start screen when closing full screen apps. Another useful feature is the addition of close, maximize and restore options, on full screen apps. This means that you can switch between full screen and windowed mode at any time, with a single click.

Installed apps are displayed in a list, in one of the interface's sections. You can set individual apps to launch in full screen, maximized or windowed mode. Additionally, ModernMix allows you to run each application and create desktop shortcuts, from the same list.

Pros:
You can run modern Windows 8 apps in windowed mode. The software allows you to set applications to run in full screen or windowed mode separately. ModernMix provides a large number of customization options, which are well organized and easy to understand.

Cons:
Apart from the limited trial period, there are no serious drawbacks to mention.

ModernMix gives you the possibility of working with Windows 8 apps just like in previous Windows versions.
