    Windows 8.1 'Ultimate' RTM 64 bit (Pro/WMC).

    No idea why, but not surprised. Some of my settings (not those ones) were changed as well.

    Nothing serious, just lost my location in the weather app and similar small niggles

    Thanks Wenda, I've also noticed that closing via the App icon on Task Bar also only Suspends. So it's drag & flip or Alt+F4 as you suggest
    Thank you.

Metro apps only closing with alt f4
Hello all, I don't know if this is intended or not, but my Metro apps will only completely close if I use alt+f4 from within the app to close it. If I pull the app down from the top with my mouse, or I go to the switcher, right click, and click close, the only thing that happens is that my Metro...
