    windows 8 and fullscreen

    Hi, I installed windows 8 on my touch computer that I use for kiosk-like applications and noticed a problem: the system has a new "charm bar" that is shown when you do a sort of swipe gesture close to the right edge of the screen. Even if I set the app properties to run in fullscreen, this charm bar still appears, making it too easy for users to bypass my app and return to the system. Is this only related to MMF2-made apps or is it general? Is there a way to avoid this charm bar?

    Maybe Always On Top combined with Maximized and No Header When Maximized would work?

    no... :-( it seems to be related to windows itself, not to the MMF application: the same is happening on fullscreen adobe air apps

    you can remove the charm bar using registry changes. A quick google search returns: http://www.howtogeek.com/127645/how-...-in-windows-8/

    I wonder if an extension object can be made to do this and maybe interact with a few other new Windows 8 special features.

    From the link provided by danworth it looks like this could be done by the registry object. Simply create the registry keys and set both to 1. Upon exit, set both to 0...

    I like Jeff's idea of a Windows 8 functionality object however!

    I had seen this registry trick before, but it only works for mouse interactions, not touch screen ones. There also was a similar registry change for touchscreens but it seems it only worked on pre-release windows 8 versions...

    Chokito, were you ever able to get this resolved or did you change to a different OS like windows 7?
