Hi!i have a surface pro 2 updated to the latest windows but when on tablet mode
the UWP Apps shown closed whenever i multitask. I open a UWP App, and its icon
is shown on the running apps list BUT as soon as I multitask to another app its
icon closes(like the app closed but this didnt happen...)
So i can multitask only with windows desktop apps.
I consider this to be a bug.... Please fix!!!!

BUG is the whole of Windows 10, Microsoft developers not giving two cents about backwards compatibility anymore and Microsoft being dead set on pissing off developers and users alike. That's the bug! :P

This said, unfortunately I don't have a Surface Pro to put into tablet mode (didn't even know that was a thing) to figure out what is going on and try to work around it. But I do have an idea of what might be going on: in Tablet mode MS changes the behavior of UWP apps.

Eh?! I have three Windows 10 machines here, two VM and one physical. Don't see that behavior on any of them, nor has anyone else complained.

Are you running an Insider Preview version of Windows 10?!
