My computer is currently running on the new Windows 8 the developer preview as the final version has not been released yet. However, I am experiencing a number of problems with it for instance when closing an application you must open the task manager in order for you to do this. This is really a long process and I am wondering if someone has already found out how to close applications without having to go through the task manager. Is there a shortcut for this? Please let me know.

The windows 8 operating system has been designed in a manner that it uses a technique that will suspend the applications that are running and then kill them later when the windows notices that you have finished using that application. So will not need to bother closing the application process but just leave the job to windows itself.

The only that you can use to end the applications that are running is to switch to the "Desktop" in Windows 8, and after you have done that you will run the Task Manager by right clicking the taskbar and then clicking on "Start Task Manager". After you have done that you can then kill the application by highlighting it and clicking the End Task button.

That happens because you are currently on the developer preview. It is meant for testing only and for users to have a quick preview of the operating system and experience its features. When using the developer preview, expect many errors during operation because it is not the final release.

At the moment, if you still want to use Windows 8 on your computer, you should update to Windows 8.1 to have a continued support. Visit Microsoft Windows 8.1 Update to learn how to download the Service Pack update. Windows 10 is already available. If your computer is compatible with the latest Windows operating system, you might want to consider upgrading to Microsoft Windows 10.

To install Windows 10, you need 1 GHz or faster processor, 1 GB RAM for 32-bit and 2 GB RAM for 64-bit, 16 GB free space for 32-bit and 20 GB free space for 64-bit, and Microsoft DirectX 9-compatible video card with WDDM 1.0 driver or higher. Visit Windows 10 Specifications and System Requirements to learn more about the deprecated features and other stuffs.
