How do you disable the “hot corners” feature that switches between applications in Windows 8? I accidentally click them all the time.

The easiest way is to select desktop view, then right click the toolbar and select “properties.” “Taskbar and navigation properties” will pop-up, then click the “navigation” tab. There you will see check boxes that let you disable the hot corners feature, or you could change it more to you liking.
