1. Make sure that the Desktop tile is in the first group of tiles and it is also the first (top-left corner right under Start) and restart your Windows PC.

  2. On the Login Screen, enter your password and DO NOT press Enter or click the Arrow button. Instead what you want to do here is to press down and hold the Enter key.

Second method

Another way to do almost the same thing is to move the Desktop tile to the first tile, as I mentioned before, and as soon as you are logged in, simply hit Enter. When you do this Windows 8 by default launches the first tile in the Start screen. And that’s pretty much all there is to it. You just bypassed Metro to went directly to the Windows desktop environment without any system configuration or installation of additional software.
