    App signout


    I cant figure how to sign out off an app, so that i can sign in as a different user. Example my wife is signed into mahjong under her Microsoft username and i want to log her off and sign in under my username. I don't see anywhere to sign off at, to change users.

    From what I can see, once an App starts, it's there until you reboot.

    The only way I've found to kill it is from Task Manager.

    Yet another reason I don't use Apps.

    @ztrucker.

    no. for metro apps, to terminate them, you drag them from the top of the screen to the bottom. otherwise, it gets minimized. however, when a metro app is minimized, it is suspended so it's not using resources (unless it requires a data connection like streaming music).
