How To Log Into The Desktop, Add a Start Menu, and Disable Hot Corners in Windows 8
If you donít have a touchscreen computer and spend all your time on the desktop, Windows 8ís new interface can seem intrusive. Microsoft wonít allow you to disable the new interface, but Classic Shell provides the options Microsoft didnít.
In addition to providing a Start button, Classic Shell can take you straight to the desktop when you log in and disable the hot corners that activate the charms and metro app switcher.
There are other programs that do this, but Classic Shell is free and open-source. Many of the alternatives, such as Start8 and RetroUI, are commercial apps that cost money. Weíve covered Classic Shell in the past, but itís come a long way since then.
