Switch Between Apps Won’t Go Away In Windows 8

You may find that the Switch between apps popup won’t go away in Windows 8. To fix this and make the Switch between apps popup go away, either:

  • Move the mouse to the top left hand corner of the screen
  • Create a DWORD called DisableHelpStick in the Windows 8 registry (type registry then press enter in the Start screen to load the registry editor) in the following location:
    HKEY_Current_User\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\EdgeUI
  • Create a GPO to Enable the Disable help tips setting here:
    User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Edge UI

Any of the above solutions should make the Switch between apps message go away.
