    Can You Disable The Charm Bar


    I dont think this is in the correct section maybe a nice mod will move it but my question is

    Can you disable the Charm Bar because that is the section of win8 I hate the most

    While using the internet on a laptop and the touch pad if you go anywhere near the right corner the bloody Charm Bar kicks in and stops the work flow

    The Bar is bad enough without the clock and date popping up as well


    How long is it going to be before I revert back to Win 7

    You means disabling the hot corner that open the charm bar ? I agree this is the main annoyance in Windows 8. I never use the hot corner to open it, I just use win+c

    The trouble is the scroll down icon and also the red cross box to finish surfing is in the corner

    Its the scroll down function that activates the bloody thing ...............so every time you scroll down ...........ahhhhhhhh

    Get Classic Shell, you can disable all hot corners, bring back all different styles of start menu, and boot directly to desktop. Charm bar will never show up unless you press "Win-C".
