    Disable swipe function?

    Hi, Can anyone tell me if there is a simple way to disable the swipe function to change screens on Windows 8 please? It's probably me being awkward but I find it changes screens almost every time I touch the pad and it is most annoying. Thanks

    Try going to Control Panel | Mouse. Look around in there and see if you can find a tab that indicates Edge Action. You can disable it there.
