For some reason, the Silverlight plugin keeps crashing for me when trying to watch Netflix. I have tried re installing it, and it crashes on OS X as well. It is weird.

Anyway, I am trying to watch Netflix on one monitor (app from the store), while working on other things (on the desktop) on my other monitor. However, a lot of times netflix will close and it will show desktop on both monitors.

Is there any way to force metro apps to stay open in one monitor?

Try updating graphic drivers.

Why would it be a driver issue? I have the latest drivers.

1. Ever since I started using multiple monitors, since I like to do work on one with the video playing on another screen.
2. I do not get an error message, it just switches to Desktop mode randomly. Maybe the Notification Icon Area is changing, which causes it to revert to Desktop mode?
3. None, I am using the Netflix app.
4. 64-bit.
