    Disabling the left screen "Bump" or "quick switch"


    So got windows 8 Dev installed so far so good, I thought I would like the left screen bump to go to last app or program used feature till I installed some games and tried to play them suddenly my left side of my screen is no good if needing to scroll to the side say in a game like Starcraft II, Civilization, ect. Anyone know how to disable it?

    Some of the metro stuff like quick switch aren't utilized on low res screens.
