By now you know how to bypass the Start screen and go straight to the desktop. If you want an easier way to skip the Windows 8 Start screen to go straight to desktop upon boot, and the ability to disable Windows 8 hotspots, then Skip Metro Suite is just what you are looking for.
Skip Metro Suite is an extremely simple program for Windows 8 that does two things. Firstly, Skip Metro Suite allows users to automatically skip the Start screen whenever booting up their Windows 8 PCs. Secondly, Skip Metro Suite has the ability to disable the Charms Bar, Switcher, and square button hotposts. The best part? Skip Metro Suite is extremely easy to use. All you do is disable (or renable) the Windows 8 functionality you want to get rid of (or get back) from within Skip Metro Suite’s program window and it handles it all for you; there are no registry tweaks required, no need to create shortcuts, change Windows 8 settings manually, etc.
