How to stop an annoying behavior?

    Using a program like TB or Chrome I will accidentally push the mouse to
    the right a little (with my forearm) and my program goes away to be
    replaced by the desktop. All I need to do is click the icon in the task
    bar and it re-appears right where I was, but it is annoying.
    It would seem there is a setting to stop this behavior, but I can not
    even think of a proper query to feed into Google.

    TIA

    Is it Aero Peek ?
    Right-click Start orb > Properties > Taskbar tab
    Clear the box 'Use Aero Peek to preview the desktop'.
    Here's a video:
