    Can you access desktop if charm bar/hot corners disabled


    I have an app that will run full screen and will not have a minimize button or 'x' button or 'maximimize button. I do not want users to be able to access the desktop from the touch screen (there will be no keyboard or mouse attached).

    If i disable the charm bar and the hot corners will the user be able to access the desktop in any other way? Are the disabling features available in Windows 8 and 8.1?

Hidden hot corners in desktop applications
I only know of two so far - Internet Explorer 10 and Google Chrome Browser - the top left corner has no icon, but there's a menu if clicked: 47824783 It's interesting that Chrome offers you a Task Manager option.
