One thing I have noticed is missing when using Windows Store Apps ...

    Time to start my business selling tiny adhesive digital clocks you can stick to the bezel.

    But I don't always want to carry my device.  Could you put that clock on a strap that I could tie around my wrist?  Or maybe attach it to my wrist with a miniature belt?

    You might have something there.  Have you approached anyone yet?

    Obviously Microsoft looked at all of the telemetry from Windows 7 and didn't see any events recorded where people actually pointed their eyes at the clock, so wanting to know what time it is while you're doing something else is clearly a corner case. It costs money to maintain the codebase of a clock.

    Surely there are some full screen clock apps you can download and stare at.

    @Dr Herbie:

    That goes back to my old feature demand. Let me have taskbar visible when running Metro App (include allowing Metro app switching).

    And in all seriousness, it is already possible, StartDock already demonstrated how it was able to host Start Menu inside a Window Form. The resize argument is pointless because we can always make sure the Window From is not resizable (except switch to Metro Strip mode, in this case, you can also move the strip around.).

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    @Proton2 what graphics card do you use?

    I am using 2 cards in my system:

    AMD Radeon HD 6450

    NVIDIA GeForce GT 520

    I was using two far more expensive Radeon cards, but the fan on one became very noisy and I "leant" the other one to my brother. Anyway, what I have works for what I do, which is Visual Studio mostly.

    The only problem I found is the cards do not support more than one digital output on each card. I have found that VGA isn't so bad for 2 monitors when I have 2 with digital rendering.

    My mother board is an ASUS P6T. I could even add one more graphics card, but I seem to have the sweet spot of 4 monitors and haven't yet found the need for even one more, but only 3 would suck.

    Sorry to take so long to answer, but I didn't notice until just now.

    Thanks for the info.... Think it may be time for an upgrade.
