Don't like Win8 Start?

1. Make Desktop the Top-Left tile & when you boot & come to the Start screen, hit ENTER. You'll go straight to Desktop


1. Have the Desktop tile wherever & when you boot & come to the Start screen, click on the Desktop tile. You go straight to Desktop

2. Have an Applications folder on the Taskbar -

Employ the Desktop Toolbar (+ w/ this you can uncheck Show Desktop Icons... don't need 'em on top of the wallpaper as, they are in this Toolbar)

W/ the above...
Any further need to visit Start has been 100% eliminated. All you have to do w/ it is #1.

Heck in post 6 of this thread I list at least 5 methods to go to the Desktop.

Yep, Ted. Does make, making a fuss over Start rather silly, eh?
