Valid question... how do you fully "exit" a game or app?

For example, how do you save and exit the game? Doesn't seem like Forza or BF4 has an option to exit the game let alone save and exit. Sometimes you just want to re boot a game from the start but when you go to home screen the game keeps running. This is awesome 95% of the time accept for when you want to restart the game or exit the game. Or better yet, how do I stop watching live TV? If you go home, the tv app keeps running until you start something else like a game or app. Is there a voice command to just stop watching live TV or exit a game?

If you press the xbox button or say "xbox go home", once at the main window your app should be the centre tile.  Whilst that's selected, press's the menu button and you'll see quit.  That will close the app/game down.

Thanks! duh! keep forgetting about the controller settings and home buttons. Maybe you can also tell me how to switch control/cursor from the snapped screen to the main screen without returning to the home screen? Sorry to ask all these dumb questions, it's just I don't see it in any of the learning apps or documentation.

For the voice commands, I was able to quit the TV by the following.

Started when watching full screen TV

*Xbox, Go Home

*Xbox, Show Menu

*Quit

I double-checked, and 'Xbox' is required for the menu.  You can't just Go Home, Show Menu Quit
