GeneralI liked Windows 8 before it was 8.1 Pin

I'm not saying it was the best thing ever, but it wasn't as bad as its reputation made out.

- I liked having an extra icon's worth of space on the task bar instead of the windows button.
- I liked having the Windows Store/Fullscreen/Metro apps hidden from the desktop.
- I like the start screen. If you make all the icons smallest then you can get a whole lot of shortcuts onto it.

But today I can honestly say that I definitely preferred it BEFORE they added a title bar and a close button to the fullscreen apps...

I have been helping my Mum to print using the fantastic TeamViewer Touch and as I go to close a window on her laptop, I graze the top of the screen, the title bar slides down and now I've clicked the close button for TeamViewer instead of her browser window.
Great! I'm no longer connected and I have to go through all the fuss of reconnecting. It happened 4 times!!!!

I'm very upset.
