If you are using Windows 8.1 then you have noticed that when you boot the PC then instead of its desktop you get Start Menu. When you click on desktop from Metro Start, then you see the Windows 8.1 desktop.
Some of us don’t like this feature and want to boot directly into Windows desktop instead of annoying metro start.
How to Boot to Desktop Directly instead of Windows Start Menu ?
1. Right click on the taskbar free space.
2. Choose properties.
4. Go to Navigation and select here “When I sign in or close all apps on a screen, go to the desktop instead of Start”.
6. Now restart your PC and sign to the Windows account.
