    win 8 ENT multi screen apps?


    I am using windows 8 enterprise edition 64 bit. i have a 4 screen setup with a nvidia gtx 680, i am wanting to know how to do multiple apps on different screens, (NOT splitting them).

    will there even be any support to do so, if this is not already possible, and why wouldnt this have been implemented since day 1?

    Modern UI apps are full screen aps you can snap one other applications beside main one.. there is limitations no resize etc.. i dont know if there is mods or software that allows to run more modern ui apps.. as far as i know you can not do this with windows 8 out of the box. i recommend just to use desktop with windowed applications.. moder ui is for mobile and tablet not for multitasking work on desktop..

    Desktop applications work like they did in Windows 7. Modern UI apps are another story. You can only open the Modern UI on one monitor at a time and it will only open full screen. You can launch multiple Modern UI apps but you can only look at one at any one time. Actually if your monitor is wide enough you can use Snap to view two apps in the Modern UI window. It will be a 1/3 2/3 ratio. The Modern UI is not multi monitor friendly.
