    There must be a way to turn it off. The taskbar on my start screen stopped popping up. I don't know if it was a change I made or something in Classic shell.
    i know I cant find anyway so far ,actually I don't want to turn it off I will not look to hard ,its actually a good feature for me .
    I actually liked it myself. I would like to know how it got turned off so I can turn it back on.

    I resurrected 'ModernMix' to show taskbar always.

    I finally found out how to turn the taskbar on and off in the start screen! On the desktop right click on the task bar. Choose properties. Then check or uncheck the show Windows Store app on the task bar.

    Well done, that actually turns off the upper and lower bars for Metro Apps. A lot of forum members will be glad to hear that.

    EDIT: I noticed already pinned Store Apps stay pined, they did on my main taskbar anyway. So you may have to unpin some Store Apps too, if you don't want them. Mine still work when clicked too.

    EDIT: Looks like I lied, the upper tool bar for Metro Apps is working again. I could have sworn it stopped working when I did the uncheck show Windows Store app on the task bar.

    I think it just eliminates the minimize button.

    Yes, it looks that way for me too.

    Does the close button in the upper app toolbar actually close apps for anyone? I use it then open task manager to find them all sitting there eating up a ton of memory. I've actually come around to using a few apps, but the dragging them to the bottom of the page and waiting for them to flip to really close them is annoying.

    I think they only go into a suspend mode with the close button. If I close my Slacker Radio app with the X and then open it again latter, it picks up right where it was when I closed it. Mid song sometimes. If I drag it down and let it flip, it will start up with a new playlist when opened again.

    Ah, so the minimize and close buttons do the same thing basically. MS engineering at it's finest.

    No, if I click the minimize button Slacker radio keeps running/playing. I can then hover over its Taskbar Icon and get pause, play, etc options with the thumb nail view. If I click the close button it stops playing and the taskbar Icon goes away.
