  1. disable edge swipe on surface pro 1796 (surface pro 4-ish)


    Cannot even find out if I have a surface pro 3 or 4, only info is:

    BaseBoard Version Not Available

    System SKU Surface_Pro_1796
    Version 10.0.18362 Build 18362

    OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Pro


    After intensive search on the internet I found three "solutions" to disabling the edge swipe. These do not work. You do not need to suggest these because they do not work. Note that computer and drivers are all up to date.


    So that folks don't start replying with non-working "solutions" I am listing them here...

    • reg edit solution

    \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\EdgeUI == AllowEdgeSwipe 0

    computer restart

    doesn't work

    • group policy solution

    Local Group Policy->Computer Configuration->Administrative Templates->Windows Components->Edge UI

    edit policy setting 'Allow edge swipe' set to disabled

    computer restart

    doesn't work

    • control panel mouse solution

    recommends opening mouse setting from control panel and clicking on properties, then uncheck (disable) the Enable Edge Swipes option.

    No such option exists so there is no way to apply this.

    doesn't work


    I've had this thing for less than a year and every single setting pans out this way with 80% of the settings being unavailable. I'm very close to wiping this thing and putting it on craigslist for some poor unsuspecting person. Plan on getting a regular small laptop like an HP or something (appreciate 2019 suggestions on new hardware too).


    thanks

    :)

    Hi Mike,

    Thank you for the update.

    Did you get a manual along with the surface pro 4?

    If yes, then you may check if any instructions are provided to disable the side swipe.

  3. Surface Pro 4 - Disable side swipe

    I just bought the Surface Pro 4 (Windows 10). How do I disable the screen side swipe? The Action bar keeps popping up and getting in my way.

    Thanks

    Disable edge swipe touch windows 10 surface pro 4

    Hi community

    How do I disable edge swipes in win 10 on touch screen (Surface pro 4)?


    Right now a right edge swipe brings out the action center, which is more than irritating when you are trying to draw in photoshop etc.. And there is no way of disabling it!

    This issue is all over the internet and seemingly quite old as well, but has not been answered/fixed as far as I can tell.

    Could you please fix this?

    Kind regards

    Mattias
