    Odd placement of charms bar


    My charms bar seems a bit off center, is that normal?

    I feel sure that it should be in the center of the screen...right?

    Regarding it being centred that is how it should be. If you bring the charms in by putting your cursor top right corner you will notice the icons are nearer the top of the screen and if you do it by placing the cursor bottom right the icons are nearer the bottom of the screen.

    I don't know why you can see your wallpaper to the right of the charms bar though.

    Ok thanks. Didn't know that they were placed closer to where the pointer is.

    I have a dual monitor setup so that's why you see my wallpaper on the other side! ;-)

    That's why I haven't seen it because I'm not lucky enough for dual monitors If you hold the windows key + c you will see it centered.
