    Corner Navigation options greyed out.


    Hello all,

    I recently upgraded to Windows 8.1, after some troubles which required a reinstall, things are going pretty good and I'm mostly pleased.

    But there's one weird issue I have and it's only happening to my main Microsoft Accounts:

    In the Taskbar and Navigation Properties under the section Corner Navigation the option "When I click the upper-left corner, switch between apps" is greyed out.

    I had at some point deactivated it as it was getting in the way on my notebook, but I recently bought a Surface Pro and this option would be really quite useful on a touch display.

    Thanks,

    Hello Marsoups, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    This looks like the results of disabling or turning off App Switching. Enabling it again should sort this if so.

    App Switching - Enable or Disable in Windows 8

    OR

    Switcher - Turn On or Off in Windows 8

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
