Moving metro to a secondary monitor (Windows 8)

If you are running multiple monitors with Windows 8, you might want to change the screen that Metro shows up on when you press the start button. You can do this a few ways without setting the secondary screen as primary, the easiest way I have found is as follows:

  • Open any Metro app e.g. Mail
  • Move it to the secondary screen by grabbing it at the top and dragging it over
  • That’s it – press Start again and Metro shows up on that screen now.
