Blackberry 10 Emulator - How to close app/go back

I cannot figure out how to close an app or go back. Some apps have a back button, others do not.


For example, if I go to the Settings screen, there is no back button to go back to the main screen anymore. I have to reboot the emulator to get back to the main screen.


Is there a gesture or key I am missing? I've tried swiping left/right/up/down/diagonals, nothing seems to work. I've tried keyboard keys, mashed every button on my keyboard, nothing.


Any ideas?

The click & drag mouse gesture from bottom side of the screen towards upside must do the job.

Just be sure that You are moving cursor inside the simulator and that You can move it below the simulator's screen (whole simulator screen may not fit into real screen of your PC) - if You don't see the bottom size of the simulator's screen then just exit the simulator pressing  ctrl+alt combination, move the screen positioning with scrollbar and return to simulator by clicking on it's screen again. Then try gesture.
