- From the Start screen, launch the Charms bar (move the mouse to either right hand side corner), click on the Settings charm, and select the link to “Change PC settings.”
- From the PC settings screen, select the “PC & devices” option and then select “Corners & edges.”
- In the “Corner navigation” section, the first setting to disable is “When I point to the upper-right corner, show Search, Share, Start, Devices, and Settings.”
- The second setting to change is “When I click the upper-left corner, switch between my recent apps.” Disable it.
Now, when you move to the upper-right corner of the screen, the Charms bar no longer appears and you can also move to the upper-left corner without activating the app switcher.
