View Thread: Odd Win8 limit decision
  • Proton2

    I upgraded my brothers computer from Win7 to Win8 then discovered that his monitor didn't have a high enough resolution for "Metro" apps.

    Fortunately the video card supports two monitors, so I plugged in an additional old CRT monitor I had.

    Now I can start a Metro app, and drag it onto the unsupported monitor, and it just works.

    Seems like a pointless limitation that I have to do the run around of starting the app on the other monitor first.

    The low res monitor is 720p resolution.

    Yes, I know I can upgrade the monitor. That's my brothers decision. His income is somewhat limited as he is on disability from a 1981 car accident.

    By the way, when will Moore's law get cars to be more advanced so we can get the number of people killed by them each year - currently at 1 million - reduced?
