Stardock Closed for the Holidays
Jan 5, 2015 8:45

Stardock's offices will be closed in observance of the holiday season from December 19th until January 5th, 2015.

During this time there will be a delay in answering support tickets, so we ask for your patience during the holiday period.  While we will keep tabs on the tickets during the break, we will respond to them as quickly as possible upon our return.  

On behalf of the Stardock staff we wish you a happy holiday season and look forward to the new year!

ModernMix™ gives users the capability to run Windows® 8 Modern (Metro) apps in resizable windows on the desktop. This contrasts with the native behavior of Modern apps, which always run full screen on a user’s display regardless the amount of information an app needs to display.

ModernMix also introduces the capability to pin Modern apps to the taskbar, create desktop shortcuts to them and switch between running apps in a way that will be familiar to users of previous Windows releases.


  • Run Windows 8 Modern apps in a window on the desktop
  • Display and pin Modern apps on the taskbar
  • Explicitly close Modern apps by clicking their close button
  • Create desktop shortcuts for Modern apps
  • Access the Charms bar from an app’s window
  • And more!

How to get it:

ModernMix v1.0 is available as a free 30-day trial or can be purchased for $4.99

I love this app!  I'm actually looking at the Modern apps instead of the desktop version!
