    Hi Friends,

    I am using Windows 8.1 Enterprise, the image I downloaded from this forum. Yesterday I found whatever metro applications I closed are still running in the task manager. Is it only in my computer or is this the case for all who are using Windows 8.1.

    Win8 always does that. Close them with alt-f4 if you really want them to close.
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    or you drag them down to the bottom line and wait a few seconds until it flips > closed

    and here is a nifty little one-liner (w/ a GUI) to close apps. Select the offending apps and hit OK, those apps will sleep with the fishes.

    Only works in Powershell 3.0 or above.

    Dear All,

    You can also close by moving your mouse to the left hand side top corner of your desktop. You can see all the running metro applications. Just right click on the one that you want to close.:D

    Regards,
