Hi, I know that tiles is still in beta, but I am running the full activated version on my Windows 8 Release Preview.  I am not sure if its in a future update, but will the possibility to have Apps show up on the Tiles Bar?  My regular Applications like IE, Chrome, Word, Excel and Games show up, but any apps that are run from the new start screen do not show up, and I have to use windows version bar on the left screen side to close them individually.

Thanks

The way I understand it, Microsoft has taken great pains to keep the regular desktop and the Metro world separate, so they restrict a lot of the interaction that is allowed between the two.  Since Tiles is a desktop application, I believe (and I'm open to being wrong here) that it can't access what it needs to in order to handle Metro apps.
