    How about if you bring it down slightly? Does it slide out then?

    Hello Vardhan,

    Did you by chance disable the Charms hint? That is what affects the top right corner.

    If so, enabling it again will allow the Charms hint to open again when you move your pointer to the upper right corner.

    Glad to hear that it's working for you now.

    It could have been from a number of unknown causes. Possibly from a 3rd party utility program that disabled it??
