    Apps are native applications as well. Just because you install them from the cloud makes no difference, they are still native.

    It's in the same league as the idiotic disembodied menu bar on Macs (and GNOME3).

    I use real "Programs" on my PC, not "Apps".
    Why would anyone want to use phone/tablet "Tinkertoy" Apps on a desktop PC?
    I must admit, I've given up trying to make use of Apps. They take too damn long to load!
    If I want a quick peek at an image or screenshot, I want to do so immediately in Photo Viewer, not wait for the Photos App to load 'Pictures', OneDrive and all kinds of other destinations first.
    I can open my browser, navigate to The Weather Network and check the weather faster than the Weather App can load!

    Interesting bug, but I understand why. First, you must have the setting where it only shows active icons on the screen they are on.

The "snap" is pulling it back, and the status is not updated.

    It doesn't do it on my machine though, the icon updates back to the main screen.

    Okay, maybe it has more to do with the content then.
    There's a hell of a lot more happening in the Task Manager when running Apps than not.

    I tried it with all three settings between each monitor, 1, 2 and 3; same result.
    And in reverse when snapping to the left corner.

    Some of the stuff that's loaded into Windows isn't worth the powder to blow it up with! Same with stuff you get out of the Store, although Office for Windows 10 can be found there.

    When I use a program, I want to be sure that it can do everything I want it to do. If not, I find one that can . . . that's why I pretty much stay out of the Store. Come to think on it, a lot of what's in the Store used to come with Windows.

    That's odd, since if you have it set to all taskbars, then it never changes.. it's always there for all three.

    Huh? So you're saying that going to a brick and morter store, and buying a boxed copy of an application gives you the ability to be sure it does everything you want it to do? That makes no sense.
