    How to start Settings charm by default?


    Hi EightForums!

    How to start Settings charm by default skipping the main root charm on the right side of the screen which includes Search, Share, Devices and etc.

    I realized I never used those, but only Settings, so would be nice to open up the Settings sidebar by default each time hovering the mouse to the bottom right corner and saving time from one-click each time! (:

    I'm not sure about removing the Search, Share, and Devices icons but you can directly access the Settings by using the following keyboard shortcut: Windows + I.
