How to Close Apps in Windows 10

Apps, also known as programs, make up the core of the Windows 10 user experience. Different types of apps allow users to get a wide range of tasks done, from word processing to web browsing to gaming. When you're done using an app, you'll probably want to close it.

  • Before you start: Be sure to save any unsaved data in the app you plan to close. You'll be interrupted to during the process if you don't.
