comment How to minimize Modern UI/Metro apps in Windows 8?
You can click and hold at the top edge of an application and drag it down as if you were swiping it away downwards.

I've done similar things in the past as well, but it's very time consuming, requires configuration on multiple layers (windows firewall, router port forwarding, dynamic dns and what not), is relatively fragile (router dies and I have to spedn 2+ hours walking my parents through setting up port forwarding over the phone) and is also high maintenance. Trust me it's too much hassle and this TeamViewer app seems to do all of that with 1 button click.

Cool! Didn't see that it's free (they should make it bold and red! hehe) Will give it a try right now.

Starting at €500 this TeamViewer software is really expensive. I can understand the price given the huge feature set and the fact that its targeted at business users, but probably I only need less than third of the features.

No, I don't and also I don't want to get into the whole setting up a server business.
