No More Charms Bar Annoyance for Windows 10 Users
When Microsoft released Windows 8 as a hybrid OS for Desktops as well as touch-enabled devices such as tablets, there were many Windows users who didn't like some unnecessary features of the OS that were specially designed for touch-enabled devices only.
Charms Bar was one of such unnecessary features in Windows 8 which was of no use for Desktop users. Instead of helping Windows users, the new Charms bar was only annoying them. When a user moved the mouse cursor to top-right corner of the screen to close a program window, the Charms Bar was automatically shown on screen. Windows 8 users had to take help of 3rd party software or registry tweaks to get rid of the Charms Bar.
Microsoft got lots of feedback from Windows 8 users and they provided an option to disable Charms Bar in Windows 8.1. In Windows 8.1, users were able to disable the upper-right hot corner i.e. Charms Bar using Taskbar Properties. But still the Charms Bar was causing headaches to many Windows 8.1 users as mentioned here.
Finally Microsoft has decided to permanently disable Charms Bar for users in Windows 10. Now Windows 10 users will no longer see Charms Bar in their computers.
Since Charms Bar contained some essential options such as Settings link, etc, these options have been moved to new Notification Center (or Action Center):
Microsoft has also removed the previous option "When I point to the upper-right corner, show the charms" from Taskbar and Start Menu Properties box in Windows 10.
So its a good news for Windows 10 users who never liked the annoying Charms Bar...
