Windows 10: Where is this setting?

    Where is this setting?


    I'm fairly sure this is a Windows 10 setting. When I drag my mouse off screen in the bottom right corner, all windows close and I get my desktop wallpaper. I'd like to switch it off. Looked in many places but so far haven't found it.

    Thanks Cliff, that was fast!

    That must have been a default. Now switched off.

    You're welcome At least it is only a sliver big now compare to earlier Windows versions(7 or 8.1).

    Actually I like this feature. Click down there and you go to the Desktop with all open windows minimised (I often have a lot of windows open).

    WIN KEY + M will do it, also.

    Tripping over this thread, I just got reminded that I have a mouse gesture for that!
