    Change the timeout in closing Windows 8.1 applications


    Hi everybody,

    When I close a Windows 8.1 applcation, I'm bored to wait for a long (3 sec.) to close it automatically (when I swipe it to the bottom and wait 3 seconds for it to close). Is there a method to apply if I want to change this timeout?

    Thanks a lot!
