How to Restart Modern UI Apps in Windows 8.1

Windows 8.1 is a hybrid operating system where you can install both desktop applications and touch optimized Modern UI apps or Windows Store apps. It is easy to restart a problem causing desktop app (just click the X in the top right corner of the app window to close the app and you could open the app again from the start menu), Modern UI apps do not work that way in Windows 8.1.

To restart a Modern UI app (app that you installed from Windows Store) you need to close the app completely. You can do this in two ways.

Using your mouse, click and drag the app (running app) down to the screen and hold it for a while to get it closed. You can also use Win + Down arrow keys on the keyboard to close an app.

If yours is a touch screen device, place your finger at the top of your screen, drag the app to the bottom edge of your screen, and hold it for a while to get it closed.

Another way to close a running metro app or any app in Windows 8.1 is via Windows Task Manager. Just open the Task manger (Ctrl + Alt + Del) and under Process tab, kill required apps.
