Moving Pointer and Charms Appear

    There's a setting in mouse properties which allows one to turn off the actions resulting from swiping from the edge of the touch pad.

    Interesting. I found that some touch pads support edge gestures. Look at your touchpad settings to see if you can change the options so that what is happening is more friendly to you. Some have suggested updating touch pad drivers so that the full set of options is available. On my touchpad, I always have to disable tap to select immediately upon installation. I have that feature.

    Edit: Cool, I see you found what I am talking about.
