    How to prevent Windows 8 from displaying Charms bar automatically on desktop?

    Whenever I drag the mouse cursor to the top right corner of the desktop with my PC upgraded to Windows 8, the Charms bar will appear on the screen. It is quite annoying when I try to close any windows on the system. Is there any way to avoid this issue?

    The first step required is to press the Windows + R key on the keyboard. This will bring up ‘Run’ field on the screen. Type the command ‘regedit’ into that field and hit the ‘Enter’ key. Once you get into the ‘Registry Editor’ window, navigate into HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Microsoft > Windows > CurrentVersion > ImmersiveShell from the left part. Go to the top part and click the ‘Edit’ option. Select New->Key afterwards and name it as EdgeUI. Make a single click on this new key and get into New > DWORD Value 32-bit. Give the name to new value as ‘DisableCharmsHint’. Double click on that key and change its value to 1. Quit the registry and see whether the issue gets resolved or not.
