Close app on multi task screen
Some apps, like the Internet app and game apps, back button doesn't close the app, troublesome to tap a few times before its finally closed.
I'd like to see the possibility to close an application when you open the application task
Better Task Manager That Kills The Opened Apps Straight
Looking at the HP touchpad, an app in the minimized view , using touch gesture, throw it off the screen to close it.
When you maintain the back button, you can access to the applications who run in background. We should have a cross button to close them.
A cross button over every program when we long press back button to the multi tasking option so we can directly kill that program easily
To close the application no need to press the back button. Only need x button to close the application
When going to the app switcher, each windows shouod have an x in the corner to close the app. Also include a close all button.
After press Long-Touch back button, I want to kill task. Not only see it
quick close background running apps
For example holding until an (X) appears on the edge of the screen (such as when you want to remove a tile from the homescreen).
To close apps. Tap and hold the running app- as you hold a context menu appears and gives the option to delete.
It would be nice if the phone allows to to delete/remove/kill the instance app by showing the little 'x' mark on top ofrom multi-tasking queue.
I would simply want a button to close/"kill" an open application in the multitask screen.
I want an easy way to manage what is open (like windows task manager). Put an X on the card view to close apps. PLEASE!!!!
So almost 30,000 votes and no response (that I could see) from MS. This is not the way to treat the people who have actually purchased the device you are trying SO HARD to sell.
pretty hard to close some applications so there should be a single flick option or "x" at the top corner
This really needs to be fixed. I find it so annoying that I can't close Internet Explorer

This is a solid Idea.. Multitrasking screen must be able to close the running apps by swiping up or down, or just provide the [x] icon on the up-right corner to close the running app.
Task manager is very importanat
and simple close hidden process like skype, nokia music, without restart system
press and hold back button and in left open programs like IE, in right list of all open process with skype, nokia music...

this is basic and essential feature... kindly provide...
even with IE an option to close it once for all without going back all the way back in browsing history...
It's going to be easier than now.

Please implement the meego solution (Nokia N9) to close or reduce running applications it's a very good solution.
the way how we must close applications on wp8 is a little bit boring : you have to show all running applications, then choose which one and start press back button several time in other OS like , meego , symbian belle , andrid and IOS it's much easier and faster :)
swipe to close apps is a must..

We need to be able to Kill Apps that hang.
I know that there is a Time Out Function to Native Background Apps... but not when something hangs.
How many damned votes needed to get MS to act upon this need?! Come on Belfiore.

Windows will never even compete against Android or iOS if these features are not available soon.
