    Do you know of any way to control the delay before the slide-down auto-hide title bar appears on metro apps when you move your mouse to the top of the screen? This title bar is one of the new features introduced in 8.1 Update 1.

    Hello from Argentina. 1st Good work Sergey. 2nd Sorry for my english. I find Active Corners area very small and difficult to point. Some slider to enlarge this will be appreciated.

    Is there any way to make it so that the close buttons on Metro apps actually close them? At the moment on Windows 8.1 Update it just hibernates them like it would if you swiped the app down and didn't let the icon flip.
