Hi!
I am using Windows 8 and would really like it if i could force metro or the start screen to always open on my second monitor. I found the "Window Location" but i am unnable to add metro to it. Is there any good way to do this?

Also is it possible to disable the windows icon that the second taskbar gets when using DisplayFusion?

Thanks!

If you mean the Start button when you say Windows Icon then just right click on the secondary monitor taskbar and select Multi-Monitor Taskbar.
In the next window that opens scroll down to Start Button then with that highlighted select Disable.

@Marcus: Unfortunately the Metro apps and the Start screen can't be moved properly via code at the moment. We were able to get the apps themselves to move, but then they left a blank full screen window in the previous location. Regarding the Start button, Alan's instructions are correct

@Alan: Thanks for posting those instructions!
