Unable to delete alarms in the alarms metro app

Hi all
I just installed windows 8 on my asus netbook and have been trying out the default metro apps. Most apps worked fine except for the weather one which was a bit laggy.

However I had some issue with the alarms app. After adding a few alarms, I wanted to delete them. I tried right clicking to bring up the menu, but the delete button (garbage can icon) was greyed out regardless if any alarm was selected. Is this a bug on the alarms app or I'm not doing it right?

Also wondering if anyone else encountered the same problem, I couldn't find any solution when I feed the problem to google

Nah, you're not doing anything wrong. That's just the way it's working in Win8 8102 DP.

They automatically get turned off once they sound and it's hit and miss to turn them back on (you can't just click on the "On/Off" area, you have to drag the slider to turn 'em on but you only have to click it to turn 'em off):

Solved, i've reproduced your Problem, i've created some alarms and successfully deleted them.

For delete the created alarms, you should press 5x very fast on the add Alarm button (don't save the Alarm created now), after this you see some Alarm Windows collapse, now you just press the collapsed "trash" button and you will remove one previous Alarm set from you. Repeat this if you have more alarms.

Sorry for my very bad english :(
