    Hi Brink

    I have been using this reg file to Disable the Charms Bar hint for both top/bottom right corners and it was working well.

    I have a new laptop, using an external USB Mouse and I installed this reg file and it is no longer working? The top corner is still disabled, but the bottom right corner still works?

    I have the latest 8.1 Update 1 installed.

    Thanks

    Hello RJV,

    Step 2 in Option One is still working for me in Windows 8.1 Update.

    Sometimes you may need to sign out/in to apply, so you might try that if not already.

    Just to make sure, this only disables the charms hint from showing from those corners. If you move the pointer in those corners and slide up/down, the Charms bar will still open.

    Since this is a laptop, is this happening while using the touchpad. If so, then check to see if disabling edge swipes may help.
    Hope this helps for now.

    Hi Brink

    OK, my mistake.

    I thought Step 2 disabled the BR corner even if you moved the cursor to that corner and then moved it Up?

    On my old laptop I had this installed, but I never really moved the cursor to the BR corner. I just got used to keyboard shortcuts to display the Charms when needed.

    Thanks for the info and all of the good work you do.

    Best

    Finally got rid of the charms bar thing.


    Getting rid of the uefi boot stuff, removing all partitions on my c drive and installing windows 7 ultimate did the trick.

    I have my settings set as this information states to show the charms bar when is swipe from the upper right corner but all of a sudden my charms bar will not work unless I click the windows key +c. I have a desktop pc and use a mouse, but if I moved the mouse to the upper right corner the charms bar would appear for me ---- until earlier this week. Don't recall exactly which day it was that I noticed it wasn't working :P

    Anyway, I have tried to disable the option to have it work, restarted the pc and then changed the setting again and it still will not work. I have tried this a few times over the past few days and been searching for some other solution but can't seen to find one :P

    It isn't a big deal since I don't use it that often, but now it is driving me nuts because I can't figure out why it stopped working.

    Any suggestions?

    Hello lnjr,

    Since this happened pretty recently, you could do a system restore using a restore point date when you believe it worked to hopefully sort it quickly for you.
