How to boot Windows 8.1 to desktop?

How can I make Windows 8.1 go straight to the desktop when I boot up?


Surprised to see this when it is all over the internet of how to do this. Okay, here it is.


1. Right Click taskbar.

2. Select properties.

3. Click tab for Navigation.

4. Check, "when I sign in or close all apps on screen, go to desktop instead of start".


Simple as that.


Thanks, you've saved me repeated moments of annoyance daily. I was already on IT World right after I had just booted up my PC and it was fresh in my mind, so I asked...and was rewarded with your answer. Thx again!
