  • You cannot exit Windows Store apps be design. They are supposed to run in the foreground, suspended in the background and terminated by the system.

    There is a way to close an app, using MSApp.terminateApp but it will create an error report in the local system (and in the Store, if its an app deployed via Store), so that is totally not supported and only there to close the app in serious error conditions.

    As for popups in general, there is the MessageDialog.

  • Hi Deepak.ker,

    Some additional information besides pkursawe, App can only be closed by user or terminated by system but cannot control by your code.  See this for more information: App close
