    Good to see these much needed features finally making it into Windows 8 but also really funny to watch MS furiously backtracking over all the controversial decisions they made that nobbled Win8 in the first place

    Not sure how much use boot to desktop is on RT, if anything desktop would be better off being invisible on that device. One down in getting Outlook, one to go (domain join)

    See, now that GPO ability would make me look at this seriously! I may investigate it in more than a cursory manner for work now then!

    Yup, makes it a lot more enterprise-friendly. Only the Metro app deployment to go on that front now...

    How to configure a Boot to Desktop Group Policy for Windows 8.1

    Code:

    ; 0 = Boot to desktop / 1 = Boot to Start Screen
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StartPage]
    "OpenAtLogon"=dword:00000000

    If you have a TechNet subscription, it's much faster downloading it through that.
