    I cant seem to find a setting for this? It always takes me back to the start screen and I have to click on desktop again. Annoying.

    You could go back to Desktop if you use 3.party Start Menu like Classic Shell.
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    I am using Start8. Does that have some kind of option I am missing and not seeing?

    to close an open APP on Windows 8 just be on the Metro Screen and move your mouse
    cursor to the left upper corner. it will popup a little window of the open app or all open apps.
    simply right click on the thumbnailed image of the app and click "close".
