    You need to do the gesture to get the start menu. Whether that closes the App or not I don't know but it gets you out of it.

    Say I open an app like Piano...anyone know how to minimize or close out the app? Right clicking brings up a menu at the bottom, but no matter what I do, I can't get maximize/minimize/close buttons to pop up. Any ideas?
    Try clicking the left mid part of the screen. Works for me to get me out.

    Yeah, I can get back to the desktop by doing that, but it doesn't actually close out the app, as can be seen by doing alt+tab. The only way I've found so far is pulling up Task Manager and ending it that way.

    It's a serious point though. If you can't close an App then it's just going to is there hogging resources.

    Don't worry Shawn will figure a way out for us soon, just try to stay calm.
