Is it possible to customize what actions are performed when you mouse into the hot corners in Windows 8?

  • AFAIK no. Although you can dock apps to the sides or alternatively use Alt+Tab to navigate between programs the usual way.

  • My guess for their reasoning, is to maintain at least some consistency.

  • I would agree but you can customize Apple's hot corners

I'm not sure if you can change their actions, but you can disable them by editing the registry/using Skip Metro Suite (http://winaero.com/download.php?view.33).
