    On my Lumia 1020, WP8.1, Version 8.10.12393.890 I press top screen for ages, but no little hand appears. Sometimes a blue bar with a minus in middle appears, app does not close… Win Phone 8.1 SUCKS

      This tutorial applies to Windows 8.1 not Windows Phone 8.1.

      If you want to close apps in Windows Phone 8.1, press and hold the Back button on your phone and a list with all opened apps is shown. you can then close each of them by tapping the X button on their top-right corner.

    Hello everyone, I wanted to share one convenient way I’ve been doing for point #4, is that you can also scroll-click anywhere on the window preview to close it too. Nifty trick.
