    Metro side by side windows doesn't work

    I use Dell Studio 1536 with this resolution :

    It is important for me to keep 2 apps in same screen at least, for example IE and Translator.

    I also tried to edit regedit as a tutorial found on Bing said to follow to enabling this feature.

    but the problem still is alive and restrict me just to switching between apps which is not comfort.

    any solution ?

    thank you

    Windows 8.1...coming to a Windows 8 PC near you in less than one month in preview, a few months from official RTM.

    I don't advise installing the preview on your main PC. Details were also revealed that to go from the preview version to the RTM version, you'll have to reinstall your apps. However, if you go from 8.0 straight to 8.1 RTM, you will not have to reinstall your apps.

    if you have a secondary PC with which you can experiment or if you plan to install to a virtual environment, then it makes more sense.

Workaround for metro apps not launching and enabling side-by-side apps
Minimum resolution for fully working Metro UI is 1024x768. But most current touch devices out there have resolution of 1024x600 or smaller, which means that we could not enjoy testing new metro UI. Fortunately, Intel added a feature into their drivers that allows you to get bigger resolution on...
