    One alternative is to replace and/or change that inherent start button (and desktop) functionality with (free) Classic Shell. This does have the option you are looking for and much more. Good luck.

    My concern is just that I don't want this window from right to come on everytime I scroll. Can you help me on that. Its really frustrating and happening since I updated to 8.1

    If you right click your taskbar, then select properties, then click the navigation tab, I see options to disable the top-right and top-left, but it appears that the bottom-right and swipe are not changeable without a third-party application. However, I could be wrong so wait for more feedback and good luck.
