Classic Start Menu or Modified Metro Interface in Windows 8 with Actual Multiple Monitors
Several months have passed since Windows 8 has been released. Following results of online surveys, most people find the use of the new feature, called Metro Start Menu, inconvenient. However, a solution to this problem was found by developers from Sourceforge. And Actual Tools has integrated it into Actual Multiple Monitors.
The new advantage of Actual Multiple Monitors is the possibility to change the Metro interface. There are two ways to make the Windows 8 interface more friendly for users.
The first way allows you to change Metro Interface to the Classic Windows Start Menu. Moreover, you can set a desired skin for the start menu (Windows XP, Vista, or Seven).
The second way allows you to decrease the area occupied by the Metro Start Menu. So, the Metro interface will occupy only a quarter of the desktop. This way is something like mixed version of the old and new Start Menu.
Moreover, you can use all other features of Actual Multiple Monitors:
- Fully-functional Taskbar.Actual Multiple Monitors taskbar is virtually identical to the standard Windows taskbar, and you can use it on each monitor.
- Desktop Divider can split the desktop area into any number of adjacent non-intersecting zones as tiles. Each tile behaves like a small desktop within its own borders: if you maximize a window within the boundaries of the tile, the window will span the tile's area.
- Desktop Mirroring allows creating mirrors of various objects (the area around the mouse pointer, a part of desktop, specified window/application/monitor) in a separate window.
- Advanced Windows Control allows you to use a few additional title buttons and context menu commands for quick windows navigation.
- And many more…
