    Right click your taskbar and select properties. Then go to the navigation tab. Check to see if the first two options under Corner navigation are checked. When I point to the upper right corner and When I point to the upper left corner.

    EDIT: The lower right hot corner should still work for the charms bar.

    Try pressing Windows key+C a few times.
    It might un-stick it.

    Hello Zaref,

    Do you have any 3rd party programs installed that have the option to disable the Charms TR corner and App Switcher TL corner hints?

    Since you have Windows 8.1, check both Option Two and Option Three in the tutorial below to enable the Charms hint may help.
    .... and see if the tutorial below may help to enable the App Switcher hot corner.

    If these do not help, then you could try doing a system restore using a restore point dated before this happened to hopefully undo and fix them.

    Hope this helps for now,
    Shawn
