    is there a registry teak to close quickly windows8.1 apps


    hi

    is there a registry teak to close quickly windows 8.1 apps?

    i mean i can use f4+Alt

    but i mean the timing when i close an app clicking with the mouse ,draging it down and wait (3 seconds i guess)
    is there a tweak to reduce the 3 seconds? for example to 1

    thanks

    How about using this:
    WinAero: Close Threshold for Windows 8.1

    Move the all 3 slide bars to left then click apply.

    The WinAero software is quite kosher, but if you want to tweak the registry yourself and are comfortable doing so:

    Nope, that option only suspends the app. There are others in the tutorial that will completely close an app though.
