    I have StartIsBack installed but when I am typing on the keyboard sometimes the metro screen suddenly pops up and I find myself continuing to type in the search box! how do I stop this crap?

    I think this is triggered if I slightly touch the touchpad but I'm not sure.

    Please help me I am going nuts!

    Your win logo key has a build-in air gesture sensor. :laie:

    If you use an Laptop, use the Hot-Key for to switch off the Touchpad, on my Acer laptop that's the FN-Key + F7

    For to be able to give an answer I would need to see with my own eye's how you're working on your machine!

    It could be that you touch without any intention the Touchpad while working on your computer. That's why I keep the Touchpad on mine switched off all time, I use an WiFi Mouse anyway because it's more comfortable than any touchpad!

    Very true, I can never ever use a touchpad I feel I am paralyzed if use a touchpad so im gonna turn it off too that would get rid of this s**t because the metro screen only pops up when I accidentally touch the touchpad

    Think the touchpad drivers are still a bit buggy (or my touchpad just sticks a bit..) - If I hang around too long on the right edge of my touchpad the charms bar says howdy o_O
