Windows 8.1 update 1 adds a new feature to metro apps. You can right click the app's icon (upper left corner when the app is open) and it will give you the option to split left or split right. When ModernMix is installed this opton is not available. Neil and or other team members could you please take a look at this problem too.

Wrong thread for this, but I don't believe we impact that at all with ModernMix.  It will not happen when windowed, but that's working as designed.

Neil thanks for your quick response, sorry about the thread. I can start a new one if you prefer. I just reinstalled ModernMix and got the same result. I made a screenshot for you to see. The app (weather) is maximized (not windowed) and still no split option. When ModernMix is not installed the split option is there. I don't do this very often, so if you could tell me where to upload the screenshot so I can add it to my post I would appreciate it.

I ran into the same WindowBlinds problem after the Win8.1 update -- but then, I uninstalled and reinstalled WindowBlinds 8.03 and it works OK, now.

You need to uninstall, run a registry cleaner like CCleaner, reboot, then reinstall.

I uninstalled ran Glary Utilities and also CCleaner, then rebooted and reinstalled but did not fix the problem.

If I set desktop to default works if I set desktop to any other skin does not work.

I updated from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 + Update 1 today. Same issue here now. No context menu showing in metro start screen when using any WindowBlinds skin. I hope this will be fixed soon.

Unfortunately there was a small delay in the QA due to other projects, but I have been told we are aiming for a release next week if we can.

Sorry for the delay.
