I just wanted to say that my biggest annoyance with Windows 8 is that there is no X out button to close applications that I open, they continue to run in the background and appear in the left side of screen menu.
As a very long time PC user, I've always closed my applications when I'm done using them, and with Windows 8 they just continue to run, and I've no way to X out of them when I'm done with them. I'm sure if my Mother or Father were to install Win 8 it would be a nightmare as they only started using computers a couple years ago and can barely manage Windows Vista and 7, they would continue to open apps and never close them until their computers shut down in frustration, probably the same frustration that I feel from not being able to simply close an application from the application screen.
If Microsoft would simply put a X button in the upper right corner of every application again like has been in every previous version of Windows, I'd be a whole lot less annoyed with Windows 8. I really don't want to have to go over to the left side of my screen to switch to my desktop just so that I can go back to the left side of my screen again to right click on every app that I've opened in the past 3 hours to close them.
A simple "Close" or "X" button on every application would allow me to close them when I'm done with them.
I do of course realize that they use little memory and my Laptop does have 16GB of RAM installed so it's not like it's going to run out of RAM, but it just plain annoys me that there are things running that I am no longer using.
I don't suppose there is any 3rd party applications like the Classic Shell that would put a Close button or an X button someplace consistant on every app that I run, is there? Or maybe there is a button someplace on all the application screens that let me close them and I'm just not seeing it? (Again, I know I can go to the left side menu and right click each app to close them, but I'd like to close them from the app itself so that it actually closes when I'm done with it).
Thanks for your time.
I guess I should really be posting this on a Microsoft forum somewhere to make them aware of my concerns as I'm sure others must be doing at this point.
