How do I get rid of the annoying large arrow in the top rh

Customer Question

Bryan :

My name is Bryan and I will be assisting you today.

Bryan :

Are you referring to the charms bar activator?

JACUSTOMER-oak9f90g- :

yes

Bryan :

hmmm ... I don't actually have the arrow. But give me a sec.

Bryan :

Are you using a touchscreen or mouse?

JACUSTOMER-oak9f90g- :

mouse

Bryan :

Ok. And this arrow is showing on the "Desktop" mode, not the "Start" screen mode, correct?

JACUSTOMER-oak9f90g- :

It's showing the whole time I'm on mail or internet

Bryan :

How do you access the internet?

Bryan :

Meaning, is there an icon you click on? And if so, what does that icon look like?

JACUSTOMER-oak9f90g- :

via my email

Bryan :

Ok, what does the icon for your email look like?

JACUSTOMER-oak9f90g- :

don't know - I just sign in to email, and there it is

Bryan :

But there must be a way that you launch your email program. How do you launch email?

JACUSTOMER-oak9f90g- :

by signing in

Bryan :

So as soon as you turn on your computer, the Windows 8.1 sign-in screen comes up. From there you enter your password and Windows begins to load. So as soon as it's loaded it just starts your email without you doing anything else?

JACUSTOMER-oak9f90g- :

I turn on my computer, and the bt sign in screen comes up when I press the mail icon

JACUSTOMER-oak9f90g- :

the compose mail icon

Bryan :

That's what I'm asking ... describe that email icon for me

JACUSTOMER-oak9f90g- :

red with compose mail on it

Bryan :

Ok. Unfortunately it sounds like you have a custom setup that I'm not really sure how to answer. The arrow is showing you how to activate the charms bar I'm sure. But how it got there, I couldn't say because it's not a regular part of Windows 8.1. Do you have an IT person that set this machine up for you?

JACUSTOMER-oak9f90g- :

I downloaded 8.1 for free from the icon

JACUSTOMER-oak9f90g- :

I can only read half your answer because the icon is over the rh side

Bryan :

Do you know how to do a screenshot?

JACUSTOMER-oak9f90g- :

no

JACUSTOMER-oak9f90g- :

Forget it - I'll got to someone else who does know

Bryan :

Instead of rating "Bad" I could have easily submitted you for a refund. I'm telling you that this is not a normal part of Windows but I would have still been willing to help.
