Did the registry thing-didn't work. There's no place to disable the edge swipe. After spending much time trying to get rid of the charm bar I finally uninstalled the Asus gesture app in control panel. I can still get the charm bar by win key-C or swiping down from the right corner of the clickpad. I did lose the ability to scroll with the clickpad but can still scroll on the touch screen. Charm bar was driving me crazy by popping up every time I brushed the clickpad from right to left. I like this configuration much better, charm bar only when I want it. Later, Ray
