    New touch gesture to close metro apps


    A recent video has been released showing that users can close metro style apps just by using touch gestures, this video has been released on the WinUnleaked.tk web site.

    In the developer preview of Windows 8 users are only able to close metro apps using the Task Manager.

    To view the video go to the WinUnleaked.tk web site.

Solved How to close Metro apps? in General Support
Since I've not installed adobe reader, the preinstalled Reader app opened for viewing a pdf file. What is the intended method to close Reader and other metro apps? I don't see any way to do that. I don't expect we are supposed to use Task Manager to close it. Thanks
