I have my TV connected as "extended desktop". I start the VLC video player in a resizeable window on my primary monitor, drag it to the extended desktop, and hit "F" for full-screen. Then I settle dowm to watch my movie.
I have a full-size keyboard and my favourite mouse on the desk with my PC, plus a USB/wireless mini keyboard+mousepad gizmo that I only use to watch movies (I normally only use the space = pause key on the gizmo).
When the movie finishes, VLC automatically reverts to a resizeable window, and I usually put the TV into "standby" mode then.
On my old XP system, I can right-click the VLC icon in the Taskbar and select "Move" (if the VLC window is currently maximised, I hit "F" to make it resizeable first, otherwise the "Move" option is greyed out).
On my new Win8 system, right-clicking on the icon for a running program in the Taskbar no longer offers the "Move" option.
There may be other ways of doing things, but I'm used to what I've been doing for years. Is there any way to make the Win8 taskbar icons behave the same as they did in XP?
