    Windows 8.1


    You're Welcome

    Shame the app didn't do what you wanted (it might be better when Windows 10 comes out late next year, they are improving this feature in it), I have the test version of it installed, will try and test Kindle in the next few days, see how it performs

    Great. If you remember, let me know how it performs.

    My Kindle does the same thing. You may want to change the internal view settings for Kindle. Just right-click on the book and chose view from the bottom menu. Change your margins, font size, # of columns.

    It will still be pretty skinny with just a few words on a line, but a bit more readable. Don't even try it with Nook, it doesn't display ANYTHING in split screen.

    Just saw the post about Windows 10. The Kindle App just comes up on the Desktop in the new format, framed in a Window. You can snap it left or right to 50% but that's about it. You can get it down to about 40%, but the Window won't resize smaller. I'm guessing it will change later.
