In the Windows 8.1 Update, modern apps will have a title bar by default on PCs with a mouse. On PCs with only a touchscreen, modern apps will not have a title bar.
However, the title bar doesn't prevent you from doing the same as you did in Windows 8 and 8.1. It's just an extra feature.
For example, to close an app by dragging it down: Apps - Close in Windows 8
Hope this helps,
I know in the Netflix app when I close it out totally during a movie and open it again to that movie it starts where I left off, but I believe that is a Netflix service.
Thanks for the tutorial links, Shawn. Never knew they were there.
Thanks for the reply. I understand what it's for and why they did it. I also understand it's a welcomed feature for many. But for me, who has gotten used to using it the other way, I have no need for it. Also when using certain apps E.g the remote desktop app, trying to close or minimize programs inside of my rdp session becomes a hassle. also changing tabs in that session when full screen. I just have no need for this Feature that i've done without for over a year; it just gets in the way as a power user. Does anybody know of anyway to disable it, possibly through registry? I just havent had the time to go searching the registry to try and find it.
There hasn't been a way found to disable title bar that I know of so far, but I'm sure there will be eventually if it's possible and a bit time once it's been officially released..
The bar is a bit of a pain with certain apps. With Chrome, tabs are quite small and if you push your cursor up just a bit too far, the bar hides the tab row.
I had a feeling this was a bad idea the first time I read it on the Leak thread. Wondering what it's like for IE now.
Edwin, would you please post a screenshot with the bar down?
The extra title bar will only be there in the Metro version of IE, and only when you mouse up to the top of the screen.
