Metro pops into desktop!

    Metro pops into desktop!

    I have installed Classic Shell and although it takes me straight into desktop on boot I still have Metro appearing whenever my cursor moves towards the right of the screen. I hate metro and do not want it intruding on my desktop. PLEASE someone help me solve this problem. I just want a pure desktop without any metro or bars appearing on the side. I am frustrated because I do CAD work and metro or the charms bar keep intruding on my work. If I cannot solve this problem I will have to go back to windows 7.

    There might be a settings preference to turn off the hot corners in classic shell.

    Hello nguchiro,

    In addition, you could use the tutorials below to disable the charm hint corners, app switcher top left corner, and touchpad (if you have one) edge swipes.
    Hope this helps,

    Sorry I spoke too soon. The problem persists and this has me not only baffled but it is frustrating. I am posting this problem in the Classic Shell thread in the hope that someone may help me.
