    Task manager startmenu app


    when you launch skype from the startmenu it is a huge square, when i launch task manager from the startmenu it is launched to the desktop

    could there be a way to make the task menu launch from the startmenu to be a big square like skype is "phone eddition"

    this would be useful because when im in games and the game freezes, i can bring up the start menu like SUPER FAST and it is visible but when i launch the task manager it is behind the game no matter what, so im always pressing the key stroke of the first letter of the game and pressing delete to see if i closed the game or not

    Just install desktop version of Skype too, and you'll have it from anywhere,

    um i was hoping for a task manager that was in the forum of a "how a skype.exe opens in the Start Screen of windows 8, ""not the desktop version of skype"" ", not in a window like it normally on all windows versions looks. But have the Task Manager open in METRO i guess that its called when you go to the store in windows 8 start screen.

    Metro aka Modern UI. Anyway I find Skype, even in desktop version pretty quirky as of lately but that app version is just not mature enough yet.
