Windows 8 post on multi-monitor support is back up

On Tuesday of last week, Microsoft posted up an extensive look at plans to support multiple PC monitors for Windows 8 on its official blog. That post was removed quickly, but not before we got a chance to check out the entry and post some information, and some pictures, from the blog site. Today, Microsoft has posted up the Windows 8 multi-monitor post again on its blog.

The blog post goes over much of what was talked about in the previous version. That includes Microsoft's plans to support multiple monitors in the forthcoming Release Preview version, due out on the first week of June. One features that's being added is the user will be able to bring up the Start screen, the new Windows 8 charms features, and app switching from the corners of any PC monitor.

Windows 8 owners will be able to move apps to other monitors on their PC set up in a number of ways in the Release Preview, including the simple "drag and drop" mouse movement feature for Metro apps, whether they are in full screen on in "snapped" mode. Overall, it looks like power users with more than one monitor have a lot to look forward to sometime in the next couple of weeks.
