    Metro apps opening randomly?


    Hi, I'm new, nice to meet you Well, It seems like every few minutes the last metro app I used opens itself and I don't think I'm clicking anything, I even disabled the hot corners with start8. does anyone know why this is happening?

    Hello Adriana, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Are you using a touchpad or trackpad by chance when this happens?

    If so, then you may want to disable the Edge Swipes feature of the touchpad to see if that may help.

    Hope this helps,
