It's not incorrect, per se, but it is not concise. As tech writers, we
should be economical with words.

What, if anything, does "lower right-hand corner" communicate to the
reader that "lower right corner" does not?

If you can't find an answer to my question, you proved my point.

Live long and prosper.
