In case you are wondering how you can boot directly to the desktop instead of Metro / Modern UI like previously in Windows 8, here are the directions to enable the setting.
[li]Right click the taskbar (the bar on the bottom of your screen)
[/li][li]Click on Properties (probably the last option)
[/li][li]Click on the Navigation tab (Second tab)
[/li][li]Check the ‘Go to the desktop instead of Start when I sign in’
There you go!
