    Microsoft Word keeps minimizing


    Microsoft Word keeps minimizing when I am using it, and its really frustrating. I finally came to realize that its whenever I unconsciously put my mouse to the bottom right hand of the screen or else it drifts there. I know that Windows 8 has this "charms" thing and so I am wondering if it does this because when the mouse goes to the bottom right it is telling it to show me the desktop?

    Can anyone help with this please?
