    Disable Charms Bar?


    Does anyone know how to permanently disable the stupid charms bar? I downloaded this program called SkipMetroSuite and checked all the appropriate boxes, but it doesn't seem to work. The damn charms bar keeps popping up when I least expect it.

    Thank you for any and all replies!

    Assuming windows 8.1 , right click task bar , choose properties , go to navigation and un-tick the top selection box.

    I have Classic Shell installed! It was the first thing I did when I got this stupid Windows 8 machine. The Charms bar still pops out on occasion!

    Could it have anything to do with Touchpad Gestures?

    Seriously...??? I never get that. Do you have charms disabled via classic shell, or via the other one you installed...??

    Perhaps they conflict with each other..??

    I think that might have done it. Thanks!
