The tool StartOnDesktop is made with an intension of helping the users, in making their copy of Windows 8 to boot straightaway to their desktop. Its usage is too simple to be true you can say. Released on November 3, 2012, this tool is only compatible with Windows 8 operating system (as you have already guessed). It has been developed by Josh Cell Softwares. This program is offered to you completely free of charge.
This little tool is really a super compact creation, which takes just 157 KB to carry out its operations. And you will be happy to know, it can be executed from any place. Looking at its interface one can’t help acknowledging its simplicity. You will find two major and only buttons, Enable and Disable. The Enable key performs the registry tweaking task, making sure about the fact that Windows 8 is booting to your desktop. The Disable key makes the usual operations get restored and following this you will be booting to the opening screen. Unlike other solutions of this category, StartOnDesktop lets your desktop appear at once, like always.
Likewise StartOnDesktop, doesn’t allow creation of any external task, service or program; doesn’t need a restart; deals with only the single registry key possessing the logon files; starts the explorer.exe twice for skipping the Start Menu; undoes changes with Disable option; and never causes any damage no matter how long or little you use it.
