Um champ it will only show them if you go the top right most pixel then move down not if you are just closing the program, you have to move it a good 10% of the way before it overlays...
The hint activates immediately. That alone is enough to be embarrassed in front of clients that pay you money to be professional.
Guess what, I do not use my computer the same way you do. I have my photoshop workflow set up in such a way that I always activate these menus or at least the hints.
Is this really the attitude here now? Windows 8 is SOOOOOO perfect, NOTHING can be wrong with it? Yes, the way I have my workflow set up is I go to the top right to a tool in Photoshop and activate the hint (Photoshop has had a nifty feature that you can detach dialogs and move them where you want them). I move my mouse down to go to another tool and there is the charms bar. I have done this for years. I have to train myself to move my mouse to the left to disable the HINT, then move it to the bottom right corner of my screen so it will not activate. Or I can just use Start 8 and use it the same way I have before.
Seriously, what will you guys say if you were in a helpdesk or computer support position? If somebody walked up to you and says they keep activating these menus bars and hints, you would get yelled at from your boss by saying "You are not doing things right".
Do I really need to defend myself here? I am not complaining about the Start Screen, or the fact that there is no Start Menu anymore. I am saying what irritates me when I get down and do my work. Do I really need to record my screen or defend myself for this? Everybody I talk to that is not "OMG IM LIKE SO IN LOVE!!!!" with Windows 8 says the same thing I do, they keep activating the hot corners as well. I am just support to accept it?
Every time I bring this up, people tell me I am horrible at using computers because I activate these hot corners. You do not know my work flow. The fact is that many of my clients want to sit down and show me something to touch up and THEY activate it as well.
