    Is there anyway to let the Metro Start screen to remain up on a second monitor as you work on the primary? I like some of the enhancements that Windows 8 has made to dual monitors but I'd like to leave up a Metro Screen on one of them at times when I am working on another.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the reply. I do like some of the enhancements with dual monitors but wish this worked. And perhaps due to the nature of Windows 8, it may never happen. But thanks for clearing this up. Wanted to make sure it wasn't just me.
