    That is good. I can't get my snip tool to work on the metro side. Airbot has some skills. Maybe I need to drink a coke and light up a smoke (cigar). I am glad to see EightForums taking off with this WDP.

    Aaron, that's pretty cool!

    You got me thinking if I could catch a Metro fade-in page. Mines a bit different than yours as my desktop just slides out of the way to the left and then the metro tiles roll in:

    You guys have WAY too much time on your hands. If I had a powerful computer I'd do it too.

    adntech, I don't have a "powerful computer" at all.

    Still, it was fun capturing the changes (transitions).

    Again, thanks, Aaron, for presenting this idea.

Snipping Tool
Is it just me or is anyone else having trouble accessing the Snipping Tool from the new Metro Start? I seem to be able to click on it, but then nothing happens... I've resorted to making a desktop shortcut for now, but was wondering if anyone had the issue fixed.
