Windows 8.1 Update 1 Tip: Take the Next Step with ModernMix Commented on: 1 week ago (April 11, 2014)

I don't get the modernmix, run metro in a window thing. On the desktop, with few exceptions, I already have applications that do what I need to do, already built to work in a window. Why do I need...

Windows 8.1 Update 1 Tip: Toggle the Power Button Commented on: 1 week ago (April 10, 2014)
