When the taskbar is on the bottom, it works fine. Start button is in the bottom left corner, and everything is as expected. But Microsoft, again, f***ed up with the stupid start image popping for people who do not have their taskbars on the bottom. Mine is to the left. So I have a start button at the top; I also have a start button active corner to the bottom when my cursor goes there.  :blink:

 

Anyway to remove this corner image?

 

Thanks in advance

You could try StartIsGone:

StartIsGone removes the button entirely. I only want to remove the extra "hot corner" popup.

    XP was my idea. 3rd party apps make NT6 my idea.

Install the free Classic Shell and set Disable hot corners setting to "Start screen"? Start button on the Taskbar and Win key can be set to open the Start screen, not the menu.

Impossible to run NT6 without third party fixes.
