    Windows 10

    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).

    Triple boot - Win 10 Pro, Win 10 Pro Insider (2) - (and a sprinkling of VMs)

    WIN KEY + M will do it, also.
