information   Information
The Windows 8.1 Update to be released on April 8th 2014 via Windows Update, adds a title bar to modern apps from the Store that you can use to close (suspend), minimize, split left, or split right the app.

These title bars only appear when you’re using a mouse, and not when you’re only using a touch screen.

  • The app's tile icon at the far left on the title bar opens a context menu of options.
  • The middle of the title bar has the name of the app.
  • The X at the far right on the title bar will close (suspend) the app.
