    W8 hot keys have stopped appearing

    For the past few days my hot keys have disappeared. I haven't changed any settings or installed anything. How do I get them back?

    Exactly what keys? And how about some information about this computer? We don't even know if a notebook or PC.

    Sorry. When I say hotkeys I mean when you slide the mouse to the right of the screen (PC) and you get the power button, settings, wifi, etc.

    It's a Sony Vaio Tap 20

    Hmm what you are talking about might be fixed with the VAIO Care

    - Sony eSupport - VAIO Care™ 8

    But then again it might be that you have mistakenly deactivated the program that comes up. You sure it hasn't been moved any other place ont he screen? You tried putting the mouse cursor right top buttom side of the screen?

    I haven't changed, deleted or installed anything. It just started Sunday night. I've put the cursor in the bottom of the screen (I know how to work the hotkeys) but they won't appear.

    I believe you are talking about the Charms bar. When you place your mouse in the lower right, initially the Charms bar comes up and you choose Settings. Then the Power, Wifi, etc come up.

    Does this happen or doesn't the Charms bar come up at all?
