What is that bar, can you post a print? I'm using 8 and i don't have that.
It is that annoying bar that pops out of the right side of you screen when you bring the mouse icon close. It has it's place on a touch screen I suppose but for me it's a royal pain in the ass on a desktop.
This was Microsoft's attempt to meld the touch screen GUI with the desktop GUI. As we all know after listening to many, many unhappy Win 8 owners is was a massive failure and was one of the main reasons for the Win 10 upgrade or so many corporate settings unwilling to let go of Windows 7.

Ok thanks, never seen that bar before.
I just was getting ready to complete a Windows 10 upgrade on a Lenovo Y50-70. What a pain that Win 8 GUI is! Brother I have no idea how you didn't see that in your installations. Consider yourself a very lucky man.
