When I move my mouse to the extreme right of the screen it shows the desktop. I don't want this to happen, I usually move it there when I am typing.

I know that I have 'tinkered' with the settings and I have made this happen. But I can't locate the box that I ticked to enable this function.

I am using Google Chrome. How do I stop it happening?

It's nothing to do with your browser, its Windows, and you will have to go into windows settings and look through 'Appearance'. Mine does the same but to be honest I thought it was the default setting and wouldn't know how to get onto desktop any other way.
If you right-click on the taskbar, and select Taskbar Settings, you can then uncheck the "Use Peek to preview the desktop ..." option. Although that only happens at the bottom right corner of the screen anyway, but hopefully that's what's causing it.
I don't think you tinkered with it - that is the default in W10. Right click at that spot and untick 'peek at desktop'.
That should stop it
Found it: go to Windows setting/personalisation. Turn off the tab that says 'Use peek to preview the desktop when you move your mouse to the show desktop button at the end of the Taskbar'
Hope this helps wolf

Never knew that was an option. May turn it on for a bit, see how I get on with it. Can see it might be a pain if occurring unexpectedly.
It should be on by default, OG. Hover your mouse in the bottom right corner

Thank you, everybody. It worked. It is funny how the little problems really get on our nerves.
