    If you open the Start Screen and mouse down to the bottom of the screen the taskbar will pop up. Looks like it does this on any screen that is in the Metro environment. I'm fine with that, it auto hides like it does with an open Metro App.
    That was it! That confirmation made me throw up! I'm so disappointed, Redmond! This thing is beginning to look like a tornado hit it! A big mess everywhere....

    UPDATE:
    1. For some reason I can't reveal the Task Bar in the Modern UI anymore.
    2. The upper right 'Close' button does not close modern apps completely, they reside in the task manager for hours. Only swiping them down to the bottom of the screen til they flip/switch 'faces' closes them completely, and, if a modern app is used as a default you have to open the Task Manager and end task.

    This may not be a bad thing at all.!

    2. The upper right 'Close' button does not close modern apps completely, they reside in the task manager for hours.

    It has always been this way.

    WinKey/Arrow down closes the app's window, but does not stop the app from running as viewed in Task Manager. After a time they become dormant using far less RAM. They remain running indefinitely in a dormant state until they are "killed" via Task Manager or upon reboot.

    I believe dragging down to close is the same.

    Edit:

    In fact, if a Store app is not used for a period of time, they become dormant until viewed/focused again.

    Alt/F4 is what kills an app totally.

    No problems with my taskbar in Metro, not yet anyway. Are you using a third party theming program or start menu program?
    I can confirm that if you close an App with the X it stays listed in task manager as running. If I drag it to the bottom of the screen until the thumbnail flips it closes and disappears from task manager.

    No.

    Edit: When clicking the lower left Start button to go from Desktop to the Start Screen I'll have it until I hover away. That's all I get.

    I updated my laptop that is running 8.1 Enterprise and no issues that I know of. I haven't used it all that much since though.

    What did you do? I just did a clean install of 8.1 Pro, installed updates and 8.1.1 and have this behavior... I haven't changed anything or installed anything else.
