A new tutorial titled How to close an app in Windows 8 was added by Lawrence Abrams. Please use this topic to discuss any aspect of this tutorial.

A brief excerpt of the tutorial can be found here:

When you run apps from the Windows 8 Start Screen and switch to another one, the original app that you were using is not actually closed. Instead this App is left running in the background so that you can easily switch between them. When you leave apps running in the background they use resources such as memory and CPU power that could be better used by other programs on your computer. Therefore it is better to close an app when you are done using them rather than leaving them running.

We hope you find this tutorial helpful.
