Windows 8.1: Boot to Desktop

Windows 8.1 gives you the option to boot directly to the desktop (without the need for a 3rd party program). You can enable this option by opening the preferences for the taskbar and go to the tab for “Navigation”.

Advanced Users can use the registry to Boot to the desktop by setting the following key:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StartPage] “OpenAtLogon”=dword:00000000
