    Hello everyone.

    Overall I like most of the changes Microsoft made but what I really hate are those app bar hints on IE11, Mail and Calendar. Especially on IE on my tablet I hate that the screen is now smaller with this useless black bar and the three dots.


    Also a terrible new thing is that I can't decide when an app snaps a seconds app. For example when I open a link in my reader app (Nextgen Reader) or in Mail, Windows automatically snaps IE to the side, making the website too small to read.

    I searched everywhere and still haven't found a solution to revert some changes made to Windows 8.1.

    Any ideas how to disable the appbar hints and the auto snap feature?
