How do I change disappearing programs settings?

Everytime I move my mouse the programs I am in disappear almost and all I can see are the outlines for the open programs and the main screen. If I am typing something within a program it will continue to type but I cannot actually see what I am typing. Help, how do I change that I have looked in the control panel but not completely sure what to check ...

Don't know for sure, but it sounds like you are unhappy with a feature that you actually paid for.
For convenience when you put your cursor in the bottom left corner of the screen, you return to the desktop. I personally like the feature. If that is your problem and you want to disable it post and I will tell you how.

I have been corrected in the past, but Gees this one is a bit embarrassing, but I do thank you.

Just for piece of mind now that we know what we're doing and why it happens but you disable it by taking the "check" off the peek at desktop?

Yes, but I feel it is really a good feature. Many times I am online and I find the need for one of my destop short cuts, so easy to obtain. I do thank you for your rep, very nice of you.
