    This is not Windows that are open, this is installed app that have permissions to perform functions in the background (ie a news app that can pre-download news content at regular intervals so its ready when you open the app). Open the Battery Saver and check the list with the option "Show apps that can run in the background" - there may be plenty of apps (well, more than 30 in your case) that are allowed to run in the background that you don't expect/want - in which case you can disable them (and likely vastly improve your battery life).
    vEEP pEEP and xandros9 like this.

    I guess I can't change the number of allowed apps to go beyond 30 - right?

    Thanks,

    No.
    TBH I'm not sure why you would want to. Having that many will seriously impact battery life.

    and you probably wont even need all those since its not background multitasking entirely, but more being allowed to update live tiles and push notifications.

    Good point - but my phone is usually charging at work - so I'm not worried about battery life
