Byron commented on my article “Windows 8 Tip – Getting the Start Menu back without an addon” that he uses a program “Skip Metro” to log directly into desktop.
Well I wanted to see if were any other apps that do this so I Googled “logging directly into desktop on Windows 8” and I found something interesting.
If when logging in instead of pressing enter you hold enter down it will boot directly into Windows Desktop without the need for a separate program.
So there you go, without having to download anything you can have a simple desktop button and log directly into Desktop.
Have fun and let us know if that works for you!
