    I was reading this article.

    http://www.msn.com/en-us/entertainment/games/speed-demons-highly-rated-racing-games-on-windows-store/ar-AAcHkWt?ocid=spartandhp

     

    And I click one of the game and view it on Store App. And then, I was looking at some screenshots in full screen. After that, how do I go Back???


    When i say go back, I mean go back to the Store App page that shows the game. One page before the screenshot page.

    I am trying to not do this.
    1) visit URL.
    2) Click show in Store App.
    3) click on screenshot.
    4) Close Store app.
    5) visit URL again.
    6) click show in Store App again.

    I am trying just go back without doing step 4.
    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    The back button worked for me.

    @magicalclick: How do you normally switch from app to app in Windows 8/8.1? Or why not just close the store app?

    Because after I clicked the link to see the game and view some screenshot, I want to read more about the game, such as reviews, instead of getting stuck in screenshots.

    When I view screenshots, I see a small "x" in the upper right corner of the image to close the screenshot. Also, there are thumbnails on the left side of the screenshot. If I click below the thumbnails (i.e. clicking outside of the main image), the screenshot "window" closes.

    I did not get it. I believe we are using different version of the Store App. Interestingly, if I make the Store App larger, the screenshot will become larger, but, once I get it to my 1080p resolution, it could not expend any further and exposed the game page underneath. I can click on the page underneath to close the screenshot overlay.

    Either way, it is annoying. If I already have the Store App open, I get to keep the back button on the title bar. But, if I just click on the link in Edge to open the Store App, the back button is disabled, which is not cool IMO.

    Mine works from the screenshot.  It doesn't work from the first page (as in, take you back to Edge... but that's just the behavior in non-tablet mode, in tablet mode the back arrow on the task bar does take me back to Edge).

    Back arrow on taskbar???? I only have start button and pinned apps. How do I add back button?

    @magicalclick:  That happens when you switch Windows 10 into Tablet Mode.  Otherwise, the back button is on the window title bar.
