Description Chris Parkin 2010-07-22 19:29:56 EDT
Description of problem:
When the mouse cursor moves to the top right corner the desktop display shrinks to let me choose which window I want to select. But I don't want to select a window, I just accidentally moved the mouse too far.

I want to turn this bug/feature off but I have no option to do so.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
about 10 times a day

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Move mouse cursor into top right corner of the screen.
2. get frustrated.
3. try to find a way to turn it off.
4. Fail.
Actual results:
The screen shrinks giving me the option to select a window to focus on

Expected results:
Nothing because I always tend to overshoot with the mouse.

Maybe I could right-click when the mouse cursor is in the top-right corner and select "disable this annoying feature/bug"

Or maybe an option in System>Preferences>Desktop effects to "disable this annoying feature/bug"

Please make it go away!!

that is the scale plugin, you can turn it off in ccsm, or disable the bindings that enables it with top right ( always in ccsm )
