    My laptop no longer will close an app by swiping from the top. And, swiping from the right side to bring up charms only works on the top half of the screen.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks, Jim

    Hi Hawkeye,
    have you considered using system restore?

    Thanks for your reply.

    I guess that will be a last resort.

    Regards, Jim

    Well, the system restore fixed the problem. Now I have to re-install all of the non-Modern UI apps.

    Hi Jim,
    glad to hear you got things sorted. I wonder what it was that caused the issue in the first place?

    I think I did some Win 8.1 updates, not sure though.
