Multiple Monitor Support for Windows Store Apps in Visual Studio 2013 Update 3

Andrew Chan - MSFT

With Windows 8.1, you can drag and move Windows Store apps between multiple monitors. Prior to Visual Studio 2013 Update 3, launching and debugging Store apps from Visual Studio would always open it on the primary monitor. In Visual Studio 2013 Update 3, we have added persistence to remember which screen the Store app was occupying when you stop debugging. This means that your choice will be remembered when the app is closed with Visual Studio using Stop Debugging, Suspend, or Suspend and Shutdown. However, closing the app with Alt-F4, dragging to the bottom, using the new close button, or Task Manager will not remember your settings.

With the previous behavior, relaunching a Store app from Visual Studio will always open on whichever monitor was specified as the main display.

Now Store apps will remember which monitor it was moved to when relaunching!
