    Another tip for mousers:
    Y'all may not have noticed this...

    If, you have an APP open and want to return to Desktop, there are a few ways to do that. You may really like this one...

    For this, you do not need to 'pop anything out' or click on any icon, exactly or specifically... Just shove the cursor @ the Top-Left Corner & Left Clk. Will go back to Desktop.

    Very geeky, LOL. WIN+D or ALT+F4 will do the same.

    Yes, as mentioned, there are a few ways, (all) these & more. This one is fast & easy and some folks may not be aware of it.

    For Win 8.1.1 users..............
    Just simply minimize the app to taskbar and you are back to desktop automatically.

    & yet, another way.

    There are a few :)

    Sometimes will just depend on whether one has their hands on the Keyboard or the mouse is in-hand @ any given moment which of several ways of doing things is used. Or just whatever comes to feel the most comfy or appealing. Cool that Windows offers heaps of ways, nice to know what they are. There are (various) abilities and more possibilities w/ 8.1 & 8.1.1, some of which, some folks may not know they exist; to even try or consider them.

    Cheers,
