I am having a windows 8 embedded OS, I need to disable the charms bar which comes @ the right side cornet.

Is there a policy or a registry tweak so that I can automate in a batch file in windows 8

From the GUI, you can right-click the taskbar and choose Properties, go to the Navigation tab, untick the top box: "When I point to the upper-right corner, show the charms". You might also want to untick the second box down too, which disables the app switcher from the top-left corner.

If you want to do it via the registry, open regedit and go to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ImmersiveShell
Create a new key called EdgeUI
Create two new DWORD values:, both set to 1:
DisableCharmsHint
DisableLTCorner
To re-enable, delete the values or change their values to 0.
