In Windows 8, you had to use tricks to boot directly to the classic desktop (see: Automatically switch Windows 8 to the classic desktop), but with Windows 8.1 there is a new option that lets you do that directly.

Here is how to boot directly to the desktop in Windows 8.1:

  • Right click an empty section of the taskbar and select properties.
  • Select the Navigation tab.
  • Check Go to the desktop instead of Start when I sign in.
  • Click OK.

When you start your Windows 8.1, you will now be taken directly to the classic desktop.
