    Below their screen, users would have a WINDOWS BUTTON # for the applications side of things...

    And a GEARS shaped SETTINGS BUTTON * for the settings side of things

    Below the screen would look something like this...

    | |_________________| |
    | # < > * |
    ---------------------

    If the user presses the GEARS SETTINGS BUTTON *, then the user gets a GRAYSCALE SETTINGS START SCREEN, that looks alot like the applications start screen...

    Press and hold the Windows # and Gears * buttons to view all OPEN processes ...

    User could then swipe HORIZONTALLY to pan through open processes...

    And VERTICALLY to view sub-processes ( like open browser tabs, from Edge; and Edge, from the Apps Start Screen )

    User could close any process, by clicking on the X button in the upper right corner, like usual...

    And also, below that, would be a second icon with a 2x2 grid of smaller x's...
    So the URH corner of the app box would look like

    ------------
    \/ |
    /\ |
    |
    x x |
    x x |

    Clicking on the big single X closes the whole process, clicking on the many small x's closes only all open sub-processes...

    So clicking on the many small x's of Edge closes all open tabs...
    clicking on the many small x's of the root-process Start Screen closes all open apps...
    clicking on the big X of the root-process Start Screen prompts the user to SHUT-DOWN / RESTART

    Two factory launchers. One to keep the current UI. The other without live tiles. Simple grid + dock icons.
