    Disabling charm bar appearing with touch screen swipe


    Hi all,

    I've read quite a few posts concerning the charm bar (read: disabling it). These posts all seem to focus around the touchpad settings.
    However, what I want is to make sure the charm bar doesn't appear when I'm (right edge) swiping my touch screen.

    I've spent 2 hours searching so far without luck.
    Any help is much appreciated.

    regards
    Wouter

    I don't have a touch screen so I had to Google your issue and I came up with this:

    Yes I have found that post too.
    The trackpad is not to the case though: I'm using a touch screen only. The right edge touch screen swipe just stubbornly keeps working.

    Wouter,

    Just bought the Acer w3 with windows8 for a project that I am working on and had issues with the charms. Very annoying. As I didn't want to gamble with downgrading the OS back to Windows 7, I am trying to get this one to look/feel the same. I have downloaded this IObit Start Menu 8 Free download, Bring Start Menu back to Windows 8 to get the start menu back and did a calibration on the screen. The calibration adjusted the touch just inside the visible screen and viola... no more charms. I literally just did this, so I haven't been able to find if there are any issues with this procedure or software yet. Hope this helps

    Has anyone found a solution to this? How do you disable the edge swipe gestures on a tablet running Windows 8.1? This is critical because there are a lot of kiosk situations where one does not want users getting access to the Start screen.

    We use Inteset Secure Lockdown to control this. It's designed for kiosk use.

    Artabrahamson, this is not an appropriate answer to the question that's being asked. I looked at the Secure Lockdown website, they advertise it as a "Windows 7" program. I confirmed this by downloading the program and trying it out myself. It is not equipped to handle all of the Windows 8 features we're talking about here.
