2. Run regedit. Find all instances of the registry value Display1_DownScalingSupported. For each one, double click on the value and change it from 0 to 1.
3. Reboot
4. Go to the desktop. Right click on the desktop and select Screen Resolution. Change it to 1024x768.

You can now run Metro apps. Good luck figuring out the UI in some of them, though right clicking sometimes brings up options, or clicking at the bottom or top of the screen.
Thanks for the instructions.

I find that Win 8 is quite slow on the Mini 9... is there a way to speed it up? The apps takes time to load.
