    Clicking side of screen "ALT+TABS" ????


    Hello, this has become a severe problem for me. As a gamer, it is hard for me to play games on Windows 8. Everytime I'm in a game and I move the mouse to the far left of the screen and click, it tabs over to the desktop.

    IS IT POSSIBLE TO DISABLE IT?

    Please help, I've tried searching the internet to no avail!

    You mean, while playing a game in the Metro side? I never noticed that. Ok I checked it out, it only happens when you slide up toward the top left corner. Can you move your HUD up there? The only way to avoid that happening is to not move your cursor up there.

    I think if you install a start menu program like Start 8 you might be able to disable some of those default "Hot Corners" - I'll see if I can find out if there is a way. There may be something in the Tutorials section, you'll just have to look.
