modernWindow by SuprVillain modernWindow by SuprVillain
[Pictures: The Win8 start screen..err..Window? and the Modern Mail App]

So the Guys over at WinMatrix was a bit upset that Stardock has this new app that can take all Metro/Modern apps and put them in Windows, resizeable, etc... For a $5 beta buy-in. GEEZE, Minecraft does it, and damned well EVERYONE does it!

And I pointed out that in essense, it is an old VB6 trick. And that lead up to "well damnit, Solo, make the freaking app!"

So after, oh, 30 minutes of looking up the proper p/invokes (I knew the old VB6 pi's would NOT work), this is what I have. Not perfect, at all, as you can see, no window titlebars, but I am working on it. It works by moving the mouse over a window (ANY WINDOW) and ressing a hotkey combo.. for now it is Ctrl+Shift+K (for Kapture), but that will change. The Window's location is set in code, but once i get proper window border in code, it just wont matter at all.

Debating taking the current code, forking it, and having it dedicated to resizing the start screen to a window. You know, like how Stardock's Start8 has the option too...

PS: Stardock recently spammed me with shit tons of spam, so i am mad at them. I may do both as apps (the Start8 clone would be first, as how it is almost done, the windows does not need titlebars), and let them go for free.

See Stardock? this is what happens when you spam the shit out of an indie developer, he find a way to decrease sales of one of your apps by making it free...

Bastards. Damned Spam.

i dont do pirating or warez, your asking the wrong person. I find it in bad taste. i write apps for a living, and having people asking for cracked apps is telling that you plan on stealing from me.

but thats just me.

start up the app.
show the windows 8 start screen
with the mouse over the start screen, press
control+shift+k all at once.
the windows 8 start screen will resize.
it will stay that way until you log out, reboot, or the desktop crashes (mW wont cause that)

no it is ok. just re-run the app each time and instead of choosing the start screen, start up whatever metro app, then press Control+shift+k.

I hope, one day, to make a better version of this that will grab the metro apps and put them in normal desktop windows.

and when i do, it will be free, also :D
