    KV,

    Since this is on a laptop, disable your touchpad edge swipes to see if that may the cause.

    This tutorial shows how to disable the Charm bar - on Metro start menu and desktop.

    Is there a possibility (reg hack ?) to disable the Charm bar only on desktop - like "Classic Shell" it does ?

    Hello NiFu,

    Not that I'm aware of. The setting to disable the Charms bar TR and BR corners is universal for both the Metro and desktop.

    I have done the download to stop the charms from appearing and it didn't work, even though I did it again, and have rebooted.

    Are you talking about the Charms Bar itself or the 'Hint'?
    This is the 'Hint':

    This is the Bar itself:

    Hello Vann,

    Just to help clarify. This tutorial will not disable the Charms bar. It only disables the Charms hint from opening for when the pointer is moved to the upper or lower right corners of the display in only your user account.

    From the top of the tutorial.

    Note   Note
    When you disable the Charms Bar hint in Windows 8, you will still be able to open the Charms Bar using any other method below.

    Please clarify if this is what you meant or not.

    Ok, perhaps it stopped what it was supposed to stop, but the problem I am having is that the charms bar on the right keeps appearing all the time, and it is something I never use. I just want it to go away.
