    Desktop? Use the browser, you can't beat that. Surprisingly or not, Facebook is a website.

    As I mentioned at the start of this post, I am really new to Windows 8.1. So far, I really like it. I do wish however that MSFT would get Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 a little closer in the way that they operate, and that the app developers would do the same.

    First: I don't see anyway to close an app and that would sure be nice to be able to do: On my Windows Phone, when I switch apps, after a bit (once or twice) the apps that I am switching back and forth are 1 & 2. For example when grocery shopping I switch between OneNote and the calculator.

    Second: I have a couple of apps (AllRecipes, and ESPN Score Center) both of these are just about worthless on Windows 8. I realize the phone and Surface are to completely different animals, but IMHO the apps should work at least close to the same. I haven't reviewed them yet, but will.

    Third: Why pray tell would MSFT release these Bing apps, and NOT include the Bing Food and Drink app for the Windows Phone. I downloaded it to my Surface, and it far exceeds any other app in that category that I have seen...

    Thanks For the rant!

    You close an app by grabbing it (move to the top of screen, cursor will turn into a hand) and dragging it to the bottom of the screen.

    Microsoft is working to make sure apps on Windows Phone and Windows 8 can be developed with as much common code as possible. Probably that will mean more and better apps and also more similarity between WP and W8.

    I agree with you. Bing apps are excellent examples of what great apps can be, regardless of the platform.

    I stuck my USB mouse in, and what you said does work however I am not using a mouse or a keyboard. Im thinking that it would look pretty silly running around the store trying to use a mouse...... I don't think my grocery cart liability insurance would cover me..........LOL
    Thanks John

    Seems Windows 8.1 changed this a little bit. Check Paul Thurrott's tip: http://winsupersite.com/windows-8/wi...ip-restart-app
