    I have disabled all the settings in "Taskbar and Navigation Properties" that I can see to disable; but, charms will not go away. As concerns Charms, pointing to corners or anything related to that, I want it ALL GONE -- PERMANENTLY.

    I'm running Classic Shell if that makes a difference.

    f you're using Classic Shell you can disable the Charms bar edge swipes completely and use the Windows + C command when you actually want the charms bar. Go to Start - Programs - Classic Shell - Classic Start Menu Settings - put a check in the box beside "Show All Settings" then click on the "Windows 8.1 settings" tab then under "Disable active corners" select "All" and click OK.

    Thanks Cookiegal. That seems to have fixed it.
