This Is Windows 8.1’s Boot to Desktop Option Alongside Other Settings

New screenshot reveals boot to desktop settings in detail

We all know that Windows 8.1 will allow users to boot to desktop and thus skip the Start screen completely, but here’s a new screenshot that reveals all settings included in the navigation tab.

As you can see, Windows 8.1 will allow users to disable the Charms and the app switcher, while also enabling the desktop wallpaper to be configured as Start screen background.

What’s more, the new operating system can display the Apps view automatically when users launch the Start screen, while a dedicated option can list desktop software first in this particular mode.

All these settings will clearly come in handy to many Windows 8.1 adopters, but full details are likely to be unveiled in just a couple of weeks at the BUILD developer conference when the preview version of the OS is set to go live.
