How to start Windows 8 in classic desktop
I got this tip from a magazine we purchased in the US last week, and not having a W8 VM to hand was wondering whether one of you would like to try it out. This little hack is advertised as being able to make W8 boot into the classic desktop rather than Metro.
- Start Windows Explorer and navigate to your Windows directory
- Search for 'shows desktop'
- Copy the shortcut you find to c:\users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Wind ows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
- Reboot and et voila (hopefully)
If it works please let the rest of us know as I think it would be a very helpful to many of us :)
