This may sound dumb but how do we close some of the new stuff once it is open? I mean if i open PC Settings for example I cannot close it without using the task manager. If you don't end the task it stays running forever in the background. There is no "close" button on the screen and I can't find any other way to close those types of things out.

Left click on the very top of the screen and drag it to the bottom and it folds up and closes

Well hell my only real gripe was the memory usage but since that really isn't a problem anyhow I guess I can leave that stuff to suspend. Suspending things seems to be a common thing and very very nice I must add.

I suspend my game on my 3ds constantly. I finished 2 dragon quest games recently without even actually shutting the game off and I did so by just saving the came and closing the 3ds lid until the next time I wanted to play the game. Grab the 3ds off of it's charging dock and open the lid and you are already in game ready to rock. Can't beat that one bit.

Being able to do that with apps is a pretty hot idea. Imagine if you could do that with all your software instead of having to fully launch it all each and every time. You sure could breeze around through the adobe line up quickly that's for sure.
