I have installed Windows 8 Consumer Preview on my Samsung NB30 netbook. I was very excited to try it on this little box cause it has a touchscreen and Windows 8 is supposed to be optimized for touchscreen devices. The installation was quick and smooth and all the drivers seem to work well including the one for the touchscreen.
There is one major problem, though: when I try to tap one of the tiles on the Metro UI it displays
This app can't open. The screen resolution is too low for this app to run.
The machine has Intel Atom N450 processor and Intel GMA 3159 integrated graphics card and has maximum resolution 1024x600. I've read that Metro requires at least 1024x768.
Is there a solution to this problem? Is there a way to force Windows 8 Metro apps to run in lower resolutions?
