    No Exit


    Typically when I access an app I get a new window that fills the screen, and that window has no exit button. So now I can't see anything else and I can't go back! Is that user friendly?
    For example, if I want to snip a picture I can either bring up the snipit app or the picture but not both. So I see no recourse other than moving to my windows 7 computer and doing it there!

    Mouse to the top of the screen and a drop down menu bar should show up with an X on it. If click that bar you can move an open App and snap it in half screen view. Then snap the other open App in the other half.

I've installed XBMC v12.1 on my win 8 htpc and it runs without a problem. The hiccups only comes in when exiting the program. It takes a while before it responds after selecting the exit button and then a dialog box appears asking to close the program anyway, etc. Is anyone having the same...
When using a metro app, I know you can switch to another one or the start menu, then drag the former one out from the left then down to close it, but that seems like a really convoluted way to close a program. Is there some touch function to quickly close the current program, like the "red x" in...
