How to Kill Apps (Open More than One Apps) in Windows 8.1

September 20th, 2014

Windows 8.1 brought a wide range of features and cool functions for the users of Windows, but still there are a lot of confusions regarding Windows 8.1. The users are still looking for the ways to resolve these issues. Since it is the latest update from Microsoft, so there is no user guide for the confused and baffled users who are looking here and there to get out of the issues they are facing in Windows 8.1. One of the major issues faced by the users is when they open an app such as Photos or Calculator, they are not able to open another app along with the first app. If they try to switch to another app while keeping the first app opened, it is not possible for them as they have to close the first app by using “Alt+F4” and only then they can move to another app to use it. This is quite confusing for the majority of the users. Luckily, there is a very simple technique that can be followed to switch to another app while using the first app. Here is how you can do so.

Step 1: Go to the apps section and click on your desired app you want to launch. In my case, I opened “Calculator” as I wanted to calculate some data for meehanforpa.com

Step 2: Now move your cursor to the extreme upper left corner of the screen where you will notice the cursor of your mouse turns into a hand. It shows you can move the screen of Calculator downwards. You need to drag the screen and drop it downwards.

Step 3: Once you have done so, you will notice your screen has split into two parts. In one part you will see the currently running Calculator and in the second part you will see the programs and websites you were visiting earlier.

Step 4: You can open any other app by clicking the “Start” button as the below image shows it the best. It will take you towards the apps section where you can select another app and it will also appear before you.

In the same way you can open many apps at the same time and you will not be confused any more.

What is an EMP Attack?

EMP attack is basically a term that is known by a few US citizens, but it is a horrible fact that can make their lives a heap of rubble within some seconds. EMP stands for Electromagnetic Pulse attack that can be caused by any nuclear detonation in the outer space far from the orbit of our Earth and it may be caused by a natural solar flare that will occur one day. A powerful burst of electromagnetic radiation will damage all of your electronics and electrical systems within a few seconds. Check out more about EMP attack at Wikipedia.

How it Can Affect Us?

What you will do if there is no electronic appliance working for you? Your computer, laptop, refrigerator, Air Conditioner, Washer and Cleaner have burnt? A thorough blackout permanently prevails around you and you do not know how to last your food items that were kept in refrigerator and even you are unable to have cold bottled water. You are not connected with the rest of the world as there is no internet connection and you are even unable to wash your clothes in a washer because it is also not working. There is no life around you because everything was depending upon electricity. Thus, you are back in 1800’s era when there were no traits of modern civilization. These are not the imaginary scenes of Doomsday, but serious and true effects of an EMP attack if it ever occurs. The situation will be more baffling for US Citizens who are one of the advanced nations of the world and use high-tech electronic appliances.

How to Survive an EMP Attack (Precautions)

There are many things that are operated on batteries that are charged with electricity. Keep them away from electrical switch boards for the most of the time to save them from an EMP Attack’s horrible effects.

The best way to survive after an EMP Attack is to build EMP-proof boxes and containers. The Faraday box is the best example for this. You need to build a Faraday Cage for this purpose. It is basically build by metal that absorbs the radiation of EMP and the material that is closed in the box will not be affected. You can use metal filing cases, ammunition boxes and truck bed boxes for this purpose. So, you can store all of the important electronics in a tightly fitted metal box to avoid an EMP attack.

The US Citizens can also use aluminium foil or copper foil for the insulation of their entire room or place from a sudden attack of an EMP. You need to cover your ceiling, floor and walls with foil paper and then put a heavy carpeting of wood or woolen to avoid EMP radiation.

Precaution In Using Faraday Box

If you are using Faraday Box to store your electronics, you should be careful while keeping them in the box. These items should not touch the metal box surface. You can wrap them in plastic sheets or use to wrap them in wadded sheets and then keep them into the box.
A product is available in the market to avoid the harmful outcomes of EMP attack. You can use it to secure your electronics if you do not want to build Faraday Box.
