Bypass Start Screen and Direct Boot into Desktop in Windows 8.1

If you are using Windows 8.1 and want to bypass Start Screen and want to direct boot into Desktop, check out following steps:

1. Right-click on Taskbar and select Properties option.

2. It'll open Taskbar and Navigation properties window.

3. Go to "Navigation" tab and enable "Go to the desktop instead of Start when I sign in" option present in "Start screen" section.

UPDATE: In final version of Windows 8.1, Microsoft has renamed the option to "When I sign in or close all apps on a screen, go to the desktop instead of Start". Now this option comes with an extra functionality. It shows the desktop instead of Start Screen as soon as you close a running metro app.

4. Apply the changes and now whenever you'll login to Windows 8.1, Start Screen will not be shown and you'll direct go to Desktop.
