    Have you got tablet mode enabled?

    That button is removed from (most) apps when in tablet mode, as restoring an app to windowed state is not possible

    No. Had a look at my settings and it's disabled.

    Francois,

    I just installed Dragon Mania Legends on my system to test, and it appears to be one of those full screen only games that can only be minimized/maximized or closed.

    Yes, but the interesting thing is: Before 1511 it was a "normal" App, that could be restored to window mode...really strange.

    Don't forget that Windows apps are frequently updated. Maybe last update canceled this option, so it is not due to build 10586. It could be the same in Windows 8 or build 10240 as well.

    No. Last update of Dragon Mania Legends was 3 days ago. Windowed-Mode definitely worked with this version.

    Whether it was the app updated or the upgrade to TH2 that made the change, that game is now a full screen only version.
