    Edwin, would you please post a screenshot with the bar down?
    Here you go. I'm still able to drag and close as normal though.

    Thanks to all, but still confused. If the app bar is Modern/Metro only, then why is Edwin showing it on the Desktop app having Chrome open?

    That's the modern Chrome (Windows 8 Mode) he has open instead of desktop.

    OK. I see now. Thanks, Shawn. Never knew Chrome had that option, for I use nothing Google anymore. Good to know to help others, though.

    lQQks like Google has some tweaking to do.

    Yeah, sorry 'bout that Tony! Yes, that's Chrome launched in 'Metro' mode.
    (It has it's own taskbar, so to speak, in Metro mode.)

    No need to apologies, Edwin. Not your fault that I didn't know Chrome had a Modern/Metro mode. I learned a few things today and that was one of them.

    I'm in the same boat, just updated to 8.1.1 and don't care for the changes. In fact, my intelligence is insulted. The app title bar isn't necessary for me, nor the power button on Start nor the search button. I already know how to work it already, no need to dumb it down.

    Doesn't that sound like a plot twist, I'M the one complaining...
