Boot directly to the desktop in Windows 8

One of biggest complaints about Windows 8 is that it boots straight to the Start screen—an annoyance for many committed desktop users.
Boot directly to the desktop in Windows 8

To boot into the Desktop directly, just follow this simple procedure. Go to the start screen and type in schedule to search for Schedule tasks in Settings. Click on Task Scheduler Library to the left, and select Create Task. Name your task something like "Boot to desktop." Now select the Triggers tab, choose New, and use the drop-down box to select starting the task "At log on." Click OK and go to the Actions tab, choose New, and enter "explorer" for the Program/Script value.

Press OK, save the task, and restart to test it out!
