    Do you guys even read the update names/descriptions? Of course Security Update for IE doesn't mean you get context menus on the start screen, nor does Malicious Software Tool mean that you can pin modern apps to the taskbar. 😊

    One of the 5 updates is just labeled "Update for Windows 8.1", nothing about security, or malicious software removal.

    Got the update on UK. Strange thing, when I swipe to close apps it takes me to desktop instead of start screen?

    It's just appeared for me now in the UK :) I checked not long ago and there was nothing, but the update is now available at 887MB in size.

    Go to the desktop, right click on task bar, go to properties and change the settings in the navigation tab.

    Just got it here in Texas. Oddly, my Surface RT got it before my PC and Laptop did though (PC and Laptop got other updates first, just got the major update about 10 minutes ago).

    Hey guys, quick question. When I click the "x" to close the modern app in desktop (or anywhere for that matter) it still shows up in task manager. The only way to close it fully is to alt F4. Is there a way to make it fully close when hitting the "x"?

    Windows 8.1 I've already installed in two machines. If you talking about the WP 8.1 dev preview, rumors says that will be available in April 14th.

    that is because most of the apps will run in the background to fetch new data, similar to smartphone apps. It is closed, its just doing its job to keep you up to date. Since you opened it, its checking things out.

    Yeah it makes sense, it's just I'd rather close the apps if I hit the "x" otherwise I could just minimize it or hit start button and let it run in the background. Just a minor issue anyway..I can live with alt F4

    GMT -4 here. Just installed it. It went so much faster than the previous 8.1 that was via the Store.

    would be nice to have a way to close it without having to Alt+F4. Perhaps they could have a minimize, close, and kill option along the top.

    Are you talking about the taskbar or the multitasker charm on the left side? See my post about right clicking on the taskbar and changing the navigation settings.

    I'm talking about the modern apps. The "x" in the upper right corner doesn't fully close the app. It still runs in the background. Same as right clicking in the taskbar and in the app list on the left. App still runs in the background.

    What setting do i change in the navigation menu?

    I'm not in front of my PC so can't try what you're saying. So, when you click on X they go where? App switching charm or taskbar on the desktop?
