    Hot Corners...


    When my mouse cursor moves to the bottom right corner the desktop will be displayed without functionality. When I move the mouse back toward the center it goes back to the window I was in. Is this normal? If so, is there a way I can disable this figure? It gets really annoying when i am typing and the mouse slips and move s to the right. No other significant issues with Win8.

    It's called Aero Peek, and it was a feature introduced in Windows 7. Yes, you can disable it,
