When yo have an app open then right click anywhere and you get options to do with that app. You can also go to top right to open the charms bar and get more options via settings. If you have, say, the reader app open then 'devices' under settings will allow you to print. To close an app, left corner, desktop. Once in desktop, left corner, right click the app then close. If you have multiple apps open, then in desktop, left corner and pull the mouse pointer down a bit, you then get a bar showing all open apps with the start icon at bottom.

Also in the start page, you can right click a blank space and select all apps, this brings up the 'all programs' list but in apps.

To uninstall an app, start page, right click the app, uninstall option on lower bar.

Another handy feature is, if you want to reinstall an app, open the Store app in start page, right click, select 'My Apps', you then get different choices to select including reinstalling an app.

Right click the app without opening it and you should get a pop up toolbar at the bottom which gives you 4 choices.

Now that is on the start page so not sure if it works like that elsewhere.

You can delete it.unpin it it.Make it smaller. Or turn it on.
