I recently had to buy a new PC and was forced to have it equipped with Windows 8.1. And ever since I continually have to tackle features appearing on my screen that I do not want to have.
There is that bar on the right of the screen that continually keeps showing up when I get near the scrollbar with my mouse.
Using the touchpad is extremely nervy, because the screen resizes and scrolls all the time and a felt half of my working time I have to readjust the screen just to show what I want it to display.
Right now, even though my mouse is near the center of the screen, the text on display occasionally is scrolled to the top or bottem extreme, and I do not know what caused this behaviour and how to stop it.
So my question is:
Is there any switch that I can set, so that my screen together with the mouse just behaves as it did in the old Windows XP? Scroll with the wheel and otherwise just move the cursor when the mouse is moved? And nothing extra?
