Description John Hardman 2016-03-22 09:59:11 UTC
On UWP, a user working with the keyboard (rather than mouse or touch) cannot operate the back/up button, as it appears to not be on the tab sequence. No amount of hitting the tab key gets the focus to the back/up button (where the system menu would be in a traditional cmd window).

As best I can tell this is normal for UWP apps.
