ModernMix 1.05 beta is available for download now!

Thursday, April 4, 2013 by Island Dog | Discussion: WinCustomize News

Today we released the ModernMix 1.05 beta with some cool new enhancements and fixes for you to try.

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.


  • Adds background sound support for apps which do not explicitly support it (like Netflix).
  • Right click or double-click on the item in the per app section to configure.
  • App settings page lists all installed Modern apps.
  • Assorted improvements and bug fixes

Additional enhancement details can be found here:
