Softpedia just posted about a new program named RetroUI which skip Metro and lets you log straight into the classic Windows desktop but for $5. Someone should post there that Skip Metro Suite does the same but for free. :whistle:

They do not want for some reason.
But they "included Skip Metro Suite in their software database"

Softpedia earns money with the paid app. ;)

Hello,

 

  Thank you for developing Windows 8 apps that improve its function. I have recently purchased a laptop for my wife that came with Windows 8 OS. Imo it is buggy & does not come with options to disable annoying features such as the popup side windows which make it impossible to use some games/apps.

 

  I installed this Skip Metro app & adjusted its config (or checked its default settings) to have it disable those side windows. It successfully disables the left side windows but the right side windows (two right corners) do not disable even though I have set your app properly.

 

Has anyone else reported issues such as this? Could it be the laptops specific hardware (MB) configuration that differs from others?

 

Can you possibly provide some registry commands to disable the right side popup windows as an alternate solution?

I found a site that provides info on registry edits to accomplish this but they did not work at all (so I deleted them afterward).

 

Thank you.

Skip Metro Suite 3.0 - the new era of Skip Metro Suite

IniKE.png

Can you imagine that Skip Metro Suite now portable application and does not require to be installed?

He he :D

  • Installer and Windows service are removed. Now Skip Metro Suite is portable application and does not require to be installed!
  • Skip metro engine is rewritten. This must solve all previous issues.
  • Settings are rewritten. This resolves all issues with corrupted/non-working settings.
  • New checkbox added which will allow to disable Skip Metro Suite. This equals and means "uninstall".

Enjoy.

P.S. Please unisntall all previous versions of Skip Metro Suite before you will start to use version 3.0

Great App thanks! Now we just need to change the WIN key to bring up the taskbar instead of the taskbar. In the mean time I guess win+t will work.

I never liked the hot corners, disabled them with your app.

 

Thanks.
