Hopefully this will help others because this "feature" is so annoying that I was seriously thinking about exploring new laptop options and returning this otherwise wonderful Notebook 7. I had looked everywhere possible in the traditional Windows settings. This feature is a HUGE nuisance IMHO as it was causing me to constantly skip in and out of my work areas.
This solution will still allow you to utilize all of the wonderful multi-touch gestures and disable only this one setting.
To disable this:
Start up the Samsung Settings App
Go to the Input menu option
Turn off "Press & Go"
