    Annoying pop up at corner of screen


    In Windows 8.1, we have that very annoying thing that pops up in the corner that tells you something about moving the curser in the corner. Is there a way to get rid of it?

    Keep jiggling at it and it'll finally go away. And appear in another corner. I've gotten rid of two of them so far.
