Windows 8 is gradually picking up with more and more users gradually opting for it for their Desktop, Laptop and Tablet PCs. Windows OS have many useful functionalities built-in like like email clients, applications stores and market place and many more things like this. One of the biggest changes in the Windows 8 is the Metro Interface with new start screen and tiles. While this interface makes the use of Windows 8 quite pleasant and easy for most users, it may not be liked too much by some Windows users who love the classic desktop.

Apart from making Windows 8 boot into the Desktop mode, it also helps you to remove hot corners, or individually disable the Top Left corner switcher and Charms bar. The tool is very simple and straight-forward.

One of the easier ways to do it without any software includes copying the desktop tile to top left position and keep the enter key pressed after you type in your password. This way Windows will first login and without you noticing it, the long press of the enter key will result in running of the first tile which is the Desktop as its placed on the top left. This way Windows 8 will launch Desktop directly at logon.
