    Close site?


    How do you close the site? There is not any Min, Max Close button. I don't want to go all the way back to the start screen just to the last open site I was in. Same thing in Facebook How do you close it so you can go back to where you were suck as email or home page?

    Just Right-Click near the top, the tabs are actually tiles - You can have a whole bunch of tiles up there, switch between em. To add a new Tab, just clock the circle with the + sign.

    I was just in there, I wasn't familiar with it, thats IT! Great, thanx, Kari. I had been using Chrome, I switched back to IE to check it out. I wish the Tile IE-10 would work regardless of what Browser you have set as d-fault for the desktop...
