How do you close a program in the new Windows 8 Metro Interface?

Windows 8 Metro programs open full screen and do not have the classic Windows X close button feature available.  However, closing a program is easy.  You can  pull up the Metro options by moving your mouse to the top right of your screen, or swipping right to left from the right side of your screen,  and then click the Start button to return to the Metro interface.  

The other option is to simply click the Windows Button on your Keyboard to close your current program and return to Metro.
