    Any way to get Charms Bar on non-touch screen


    I have been testing Win 10, on my desktop, and even though I go to Start Screen instead of desktop view, I can't seem to get charms bar up with my mouse. I can use Win key + C but that is so cumbersome, are their absolutely no corner options available?

    Not yet that I know of for the corners, but I'm sure that in a future preview build release you will be able to.

    If you like, here's a Charms shortcut that you can pin or use where you like for now. It works in Windows 10 as well.

    I came across this... untested but seems plausible.

    We all seem to be having different experiences. This is what I found works. It is no advantage over using those two keys, though.
    In the start screen only, if you right click, you get an option for "rename groups" and "settings", which takes you to the charms bar

    Thank you all, these are at least somewhat helpful..
    What about touch users? will these options all be gone? I liked all of the touch options.

    Thus far windows 10 is my least favorite of the interfaces, I am truly hoping they don't strip all of things that makes Windows 8.1 a great OS

    The touch options currently work. If you have a touchpad with edge swipes enabled, it'll also open Charms when you swipe inward from the right side of the touchpad.

    Umm, I had Windows TP on my touch laptop (since removed it), and the only thing I could get to come up was the Charms bar. Perhaps, I didn't have something set right. Thanks.

    It just depends on what plans MS has with it in future build releases.
