    Adjust touch area on right side for charms bar?


    Hi folks. I bought a touchscreen all in one computer recently and I wanted to know if there was a way to enlarge the touch region on the right side where the charms bars come from so I can more easily swipe to get that bar to come out. Right now I have to be right on the edge of the screen for it to work. Thanks.

    I have a lenovo and I can't get the bar to come out. I misadjusted the calibration some to see if it would work and it did for a couple hours, now back to using a mouse to get to it. Windows reported my touchscreen was not compatible. It does the basic movements and taps but no flicks available.

    Which do you have if you don't mind me asking. I'm trying to use this with the Lenovo M92z. I have no problem getting it to work, I would just like to adjust the touch fields.

    Mine is a B320 all in one unit. There is no reason they couldn't put a tab that stuck out like the win 7 tablets had for their keyboard but then I had trouble getting that to work as well. I think mine is lenovo more than anything since it works/doesn't work all the time.

    They have little to no win 8 drivers available. Mine was built in March, I can't believe it is not compatible with 8?????

    Lenovo has a lot of unhappy campers on their forum over lack of drivers and win 8 issues.
