Hi there

Can someone please tell me how to disable the annoying orange arrow on the middle left of the screen.

I have removed Gesture from the mouse settings but still appears.

Any Help

Thanks

Try these steps:
- Bring up the Charms bar (press the Windows + C keys together) then click on Settings
- Click Change PC Settings at the bottom
- Click PC and devices on the left hand pane
- Click Corners and edges
- Turn off Allow switching between apps along with anything else you want to disable
- Exit when done
