StartOnDesktop Lets You Boot Directly to Windows 8 Desktop

A most common complaint about Windows 8 is that you have to go through the new “Modern interface” or “Start Screen” to get to the desktop. If you are a power user or aren’t a fan of Windows apps and just want to boot your Windows 8 straight to the desktop, here is a simple solution. StartOnDesktop is a tiny utility that does exactly what its name suggests.

StartOnDesktop will enable the desktop to be displayed every logon instead of the Start Screen of Windows 8. It takes you straight to the Desktop when you start your PC.

The tool is quite simple to use. Just install it (40KB) and run it, click on “Enable” button. You can undo the changes in any time by just clicking on 'Disable' button.

However, it won’t disable the Modern UI. You can still use the immersive application. StartOnDesktop can be downloaded from developer’s site here.
