Can someone please tell me how to disable the annoying effect that pops up when you drag cursor to top- or bottom-right corners?
At first I ignored the Windows 8 charms, then I thought they were a gimmick, but now I am a convert. In particular, I like this consistent overlay for finding context sensitive Settings.
I have seen an Charms customizer, if you really dislike it, and you have the time perhaps you could create a colourless overlay?
This will disable the charms bar hint. The charm bar will no longer appear when you drag your cursor to the right corners. It'll still appear if you put your cursor in the corner then swipe down or up.
In case the link goes down:
- Launch the Registry Eeditor (Windows+R,
- Go to
- Under ImmersiveShell, create a new key named EdgeUI
- In the new key, create a DWORD named DisableCharmsHint and set its value to 1;
No need to reboot.
