Does anyone know if Skype actually closes in Windows 8?
I find it very annoying to go into the task manager to close it every time I am done (on Windows 7).

No it doesn't ever close. It is running even after you sign out of the application. It is running even after you turn it off. Heck if you shred your device, it still runs.

If using a touchscreen, swipe from top of screen to bottom. That should close the application. That's what I do on my slate which i recently updated to Win 8 Pro.

Good move on MSFT's part. Skype needs to continue improving, from good to great!
