Is there a way to make the new metro start menu stick to my monitor?

    Is there a way to make the new metro start menu stick to my monitor?

    I have 2 monitors and am wondering if there is some way to make it so that when I bring up the new metro start menu on my 2nd monitor that I can make it stick there?

    As it is now, if I open the new menu on my 2nd monitor and then go back to what ever program that I have open on my first monitor (like chrome or I.E. etc) then the start menu will close from my 2nd monitor.

    I'd like to make it where it stays open on my 2nd monitor. Is this somehow possible?

    The only answer at the moment is "No." Like you I have several monitors (3) and would like the "Start Screen" on at least one of those all the time.

I found that the "God Mode Folder" idea also works with other CLSID's. You can give a folder any name you want followed by a CLSID and it will become a link to something. Apparently, as we're all finding, that kind of link can't be made a toolbar. But if it's INSIDE a toolbar it can work. The...
