Today I installed Windows 8 Pro and started to test it , I will probably write several posts about it on the following days.

For now I leave you with this video guide I created to avoid the new Windows 8 Start Screen (aka “Metro”) which is nice for touch devices but not so good when you use a mouse and a keyboard.

Hope you like it! If you do, please share it! šŸ˜‰

Note: Please excuse the informality of the video I did it without a script on a system I used a couple of hours only.

Update 9-11-12:
I found another tool to easily skip the start screen called Skip Metro Suite. IĀ haven’tĀ tested it yet but I wanted to let you know it exists.
Also if you want to be able to run shortcuts that you placed in the Start Menu but wont use it anymore you can create a shortcut with the following path “%windir%\explorer.exe shell:::{4234d49b-0245-4df3-b780-3893943456e1}” (without the quotes) and you will be able to launch them from there.
