In Windows 8, Microsoft has prohibited the user to log on straight to the Windows Desktop through a system licensing policy. Due to this policy, you always have to start with the Modern UI. If youíre a power-user, or you just want choice, you should be able to boot your system straight to the desktop. Iím not against the Modern UI, and I have no problem with the start screen, but Iím pretty sure I (and many others) donít need it right from the beginning of a session. It is also annoying to use some of the current solutions out there as all they do is skip this screen on every sign-in, but this results in showing the start screen for a split second, which can be a very jarring experience for the user. After a lot of work and research I finally think I found a native way and maybe the cleanest solution to bypass Modern UI during sign-in. Therefore I wrote an application to skip this behavior. Modern UI is not disabled. It all works, only the sign-in behavior is affected.
