Step 2
 
After that, we sign into Windows and hold the Enter key after typing in our password.
 
Note

Step 3
 
Holding Enter during boot is a trick that will tell Windows 8 to launch the first tile/app from the Metro UI and skip the Metro UI altogether.
 
Step 4
 
Windows will boot straight into Desktop mode. Since the Desktop is the first tile, we can also use the Enter button after booting up to launch straight into the Desktop without the need for mouse clicks.
