    How do you: Disable the Right Edge Dead Zone?

    So, I thought I had this fixed when I managed to find a tweak for Windows 8 to disable the sticky corners. You set MouseClippingLength from 6 to 0. Seemed to the job. But it turns out, that didn't solve my problem completely. Along the right edge of the screen, there is an area that your cursor can fall into that is outside your full screen windows. It does not span the entire length of the right side, just the top 2/3, and it's 1-3 pixels in width. (I think 2.)

    I've been googling all over the place and editing a lot of registry values to see if I can guess at it, but no luck. This ticks me off a great deal because I'm used to swinging my cursor all the way to the right to grab a hold of a scroll bar or close a window. I want it gone.

    If anyone knows how to disable it, please let me know.

    Edit: As it turns out, my second monitor (an HDTV that's turned off) wasn't working correctly, and I didn't even realize Windows 8 was trying to automatically use both monitors. My bad.
