    Questions about closing programs

    First of all new to the forum. When I go to close a program from the left of the screen and I drag it down it does not seem to close it just reopens the program and the only way to close it is to use the mouse and right click it and close the program. Am I not doing it right or does it just take practice.

    Hi and welcome to the forum. To close an app you have to drag the app from the top all the way off of the screen at the bottom. Make sure you really exaggerate it or as you said the app just opens back up. So I guess the answer is yes, it does take practice if you aren't getting it to work at the moment

    First off, welcome! When the application is open, just swipe down from the top of the screen and running off the bottom of the screen. Swiping in from the left switches application.
