Q: How can I close the game/application running on the Xbox One?
A: The Xbox One features a hypervisor, which allows the game/application being used to continue running even when the Xbox One main menu is accessed. This allows the game/application to be quickly resumed. If you want to actually stop the game/application, perform the following:
- Return to the main Xbox One menu by pressing the home button (the big center X).
- Select the main application window on the Home screen.
- Press the Menu button (where the Start button used to be on the Xbox 360 controller).
- Select the Quit option as shown in the screen shot below.
