Windows magnifier - touch screen corner icons - how to disable RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.

    I have a touch screen device with Windows 8.1.

    I tried using the Magnifier, and I noticed that:

    1. When I touch the screen the Magnifier shows elements ([+] [-] [X]) on the screen corners.

    2. when I use the touch pad/mouse these icons are removed.

    These elements hide the start button, and portion of the task-bar, and hide part of the screen.

    I wanted to know if there is a way to prevent Magnifier from showing the corner elements when I touch the screen.
