Remove Windows 8 Charm Bar
Posted on 2013-02-04
Struggling here, I am using Windows 8 Professional on a Tablet. I have managed to accomplish all of my goals of locking down the OS so that the operators cannot access anything but the application in question.
Until I learned about the "Charms"
Someone swiped in from the right, and all of a sudden, everything I had done is undone.
I have searched for a way to disable the charms and hot corners. I found a registry entry but it doesnt stop the swipe:
"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ImmersiveShell, right-click in the right-hand pane and create a new key called EdgeUI. Select the key and in the right-hand pane create a new DWORD and call it DisableCharmsHint. Right-click the DWORD and select Modify. Change the Value Data to 1."
Any one know of a way to remove it all together without installing the "classic shell" option. When I do that it messes with other settings I have in place to lock out the user.
