In Windows 8 when closing a metro apps you will drag from top of the screen to the bottom edge of your screen. Close Threshold app can change that behavior.

From the Close Threshold app you can change the mouse or touch gestures when closing a metro apps.

We recommend changing mouse threshold from 600-700 range, in that way you can drag from top to bottom even you wont go through the bottom edge of your screen and not too sensitive.

You can experiment the numbers as you like as how you wanted it, and Close Threshold is a free portable app from winaero, created and build by Happy Bulldozer.

System Requirements:

I tested it on Windows 8 RTM (x64) and you can try it on (x86) 32bit.
